Contract Risk Management In Offshore Wind Construction

Contract Risk Management In Offshore Wind


Bringing this event to the heart of the offshore wind market for it's second year, Windpower Monthly presents the exciting next edition of our solutions focused and interactive Contract Risk Management forum.

The forum will seek to interrogate the key strategies currently in place to successfully manage multiple contracts and ensure proper risk allocation. All with the aim of reducing delays during procurement, construction and operation.

 Alleviate your concerns by debating burning questions, including:

  • How can you effectively set up wind farm development contracts to avoid gaps in liability and unfair risk distribution?
  • Which contracting strategies are sufficient in meeting your project needs, whilst ultimately reducing CAPEX?
  • How can definitive risk identification ensure the delivery of projects on-budget and expose the expected cost-reduction pathway for the European offshore wind market?
  • What are the benefits of aligning your project requirements with financiers’ expectations of due diligence and contractual warranty?

what's new for 2015?

  • Event ambassadors and forum steering committe – the experts at the forefront of contract risk management
