UNITED STATES: Some predict that the US will have installed 1GW offshore by 2020, but even that will be slower than the industry had hoped, a familiar story for offshore developers.
EUROPE: The industry asked for a farshore service operation vessel that improved accessibility and reduced seasickness. Damen's solution was to build it from scratch.
FINLAND: Much is at stake for Finland's first commercial offshore wind farm, the €120-million 40MW Tahkoluoto project in the Gulf of Bothnia, in the north of the Baltic Sea, west of Finland.
