The panel will be followed by two presentations focusing on  new technology the risks associated with larger turbines/remote windfarms:

15.00-15.20  Presentation: The Future of Offshore Wind: Bigger, Longer, Deeper

With close to 80% of the Earth’s wind resource located in deep waters, the future of offshore wind looks increasingly further away from the coast. With this comes a number of corollaries with turbine size to maximise production efficiencies against construction costs, export distances and choice of export current, and an evolution of foundation technology into floating foundations for deeper water. This session will explore some of the notable technical issues from each of these areas and present factors to be considered with the boom in offshore wind.

15.20-15.40 – Presentation: New Technologies and Installation Methods in Changing Environment Conditions – Insurability and the Associated Risks

In this session, you will learn about the various new technologies in larger offshore turbines and remote windfarms, as well as the risks associated with these from the insurer’s perspective. We will ask what insurability means, as well as provide a more general overview of the offshore wind insurance market.
