Course: Offshore wind operation and maintenance – engineering and insurance (teaser)

You might think that engineering and insurance are two separate worlds But actually, they are strongly related Offshore wind farm developers have been pushing for new technologies to lower the cost of offshore wind energy

However, these unproven technologies might lead to higher failure rates and unplanned downtime As offshore wind farms increase in size developers are looking for outside investors for extra financial support These investors might have a low appetite for risk They are looking for steady and risk-free returns on their investment These two facts combined lead to a push for wide insurance cover to decrease the risk for investors

This implies that there is a trade off between satisfying the risk averse investors and pushing for innovation to lower the costs Join us in the course 'offshore wind operations and maintenance' where we give more insight on this subject and other challenges in this playing field
