Extra spaces released for Offshore Wind Vessels Event

3 March 2020

Please note that the venue for the Offshore Wind Scotland presents Vessels event, to be held on Tuesday 3rd March 2020, has changed.

It will now be held in the Aberdeen Douglas Hotel, 43-45 Market St, Aberdeen AB11 5EL. It is moments away from the original venue and allows us to increase capacity for the event.


Guest presenters from industry will join the Carbon Trust, Scottish Enterprise and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult to share their views on vessels for offshore wind.

With the development of digital technology, an emphasis on environment and sustainability, and requirements of designing bigger and better wind turbines, vessels continue to evolve to overcome new challenges and opportunities which support the growing size of wind farms, wind turbines and support structures.
