New Market Report Now Available: The Importance of Ports in the UK's Booming Offshore Wind Industry

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Tue Jun 18 2013

The UK offshore wind industry is the largest in the world and the upcoming Round 3 offshore tendering, along with the Scottish Territorial Waters offshore wind program, will further cement its position on the offshore map. However, in order to convert its offshore potential into reality, the UK needs to strengthen its policy framework and invest in its infrastructure. Ports are one of the key infrastructure facilities that require investment for the development of the offshore wind industry. The development of ports present in strategic locations could be detrimental in streamlining the supply chain. This has led to a number of agreements being signed by port operators with developers and wind component manufacturers to set up operational bases at ports, close to the upcoming projects. Even some of the ports are undergoing upgrades to meet the demands of the offshore wind market.
