The study enabled rational decisions about additional investment in existing facilities to be made in the wind turbine tower and monopile market.

After a competitive tender, we were asked to assess the European market opportunity for the supply of towers for onshore and offshore wind applications and monopiles for offshore use.

We provided a forecast of the likely market demand out to 2030 and presented the challenges and opportunities relating to entering the growing offshore wind sector, including the impact of evolving turbine technology, a assessment of near-term client pipelines and existing supply capability.

We have since delivered updated and extended analysis.

We also explored options for the further development of the local harbour for offshore wind, assessing industry requirements, providing concept designs, exploring the potential of local suppliers to invest and optimum use cases for harbour infrastructure.
