press release, 08/19/2021 Floating Offshore Wind 2025

Without innovative shipbuilding, climate-friendly shipping and efficient global offshore wind energy generation, the necessary climate protection goals and a sustainable global economy will not be achievable.

Energy generation and production facilities for alternative fuels offshore will depend on gigantic wind farm projects, mostly on floating structures.

Large, efficient, safe and environmentally friendly are the main requirements for the upcoming offshore wind projects. They also apply to ships required for transportation, installation and maintenance. The logistics challenges for transportation and installation worldwide affect fixed but above all floating turbines.

In connection with the desire to increasingly use in the future green hydrogen as a substitute for fossil fuels, green ammonia as hydrogen carrier is becoming increasingly important because it is much more suitable for the storage applications. This is especially true for shipping.
