Floating Offshore Wind
Consolidating the Industry, Together

Oct. 3 2023

The objectives of the Paris Agreement are clear, we must limit global temperature increase to well below 2°C, while pursuing the means to limit, in the longer term, the increase to 1.5°C. Therefore, the demand for a sustainable, affordable and reliable energy supply will continue to rise. But the fact is that the reality of today's energy system still depends on fossil fuels. As a result, the decarbonization of electricity production plays a significant role in this endeavor, and fixed and floating wind turbines are two viable solutions.

When the first BV Technology Report on Floating Offshore Wind (FOW) was published in September 2021, the FOW industry was already very promising but it was still very much emerging. Two years later, several projects around the world have moved from pre-commercial to commercial stage, and some regions are establishing themselves as leaders in the market.

Having worked closely with industry players as a third-party independent verification body for offshore wind and O&G, Bureau Veritas has significant experience in developing and applying technical standards and key safety regulations.

This updated report is an opportunity to share the lessons we have learned through that experience and demonstrate how we can support society's energy goals by applying those lessons to the FOW market of tomorrow.
