A project boss at Ocean Winds has said the UK Government’s target of generating 40GW of electricity from offshore wind by 2030 is ambitious, but can “absolutely” be achieved.
Adam Morrison, project director, Moray Offshore Windfarm (West), Ocean Winds, did highlight significant barriers, however.
Adam said the country would have to expand the transition network to facilitate that amount of generation as well as addressing grid charging, where there is significant uncertainty.
He also stressed that developers and suppliers would have to work hard together to reach the target.
Adam will join speakers from Burness Paull, Aker Solutions, Equinor and AREG for the third session of ETIDEX, which will focus on renewables and transition infrastructure.
