Vienos dienos intensyvūs kursai “Jūros vėjo energija”/ Summer’s day intensive course “Offshore Wind Energy”

Lithuania, Estonia and Latvia are starting to ramp up offshore wind farms: On 30 August 2022 the Heads of Governments and Energy Ministers of the eight countries around the Baltic Sea met in Copenhagen. They committed to new volumes for the build-out of offshore wind in the Baltic Sea. In Lithuania the first offshore wind farm with a capacity of 700 MW will be operating in 2028. There is a huge demand for local professionals, especially for engineers in the coming years.

The idea for this course was born during our lecture “Offshore Wind Energy”, which we have been holding as external lecturers at the TUHH in Hamburg since 2014. “We” that are 4 experts from the offshore wind industry who have in total over 80 years of offshore wind experience in the industry and have been actively involved in the development of offshore wind energy in Germany and many other countries. With this course offer under the umbrella of the World Forum Offshore Wind, a fast growing global industry association promoting offshore wind energy worldwide ( ),  we not only want to share our know-how and pass on our experience, but also convey enthusiasm for a still young industry, whose expansion will proceed tremendously and with high growth rates in the coming decades!
