Debate: The Only Way To Reduce The Cost Of Energy And Ensure The Long-Term Sustainability Of The Offshore Wind Industry Is For Clients To Share Contract Risk With Contractors
Proposition: Requiring contractors to take on the majority of the project risks leads to high security requirements and drives up project costs. This goes against the general objective of the industry to reduce the cost of energy.
Opposition: Clients cannot control the risk for a product or service supplied by a contractor, so they should not have to absorb it. Installation contractors have the requisite expertise to take on technical risks and this is the fundamental basis upon which risk should always be allocated.
