The key to making money in offshore wind is to secure long term, lucrative contracts. So how do you find who is tendering, when and what they look for in a partner? Most agree that you must talk with your customers about what they need and meet their requirements.
Critical issues for procurement managers today are cost reduction, high order volumes and the increasing size of turbines. Björn Przygodda , Head of Offshore Procurement, RWE Innogy tells Wind Energy Update that his daily concern is the choice of the right partners to work with for the long term. The costs are so high and the scrutiny from investors so strong that each partner must meet RWE Innogy’s selection requirements from the outset to have any chance of being considered.
For the second year Wind Energy Update host the Offshore Wind Supply Chain Conference to bring together the buyers and sellers of the offshore wind market. Tackling all the hot issues the conference promises attendees how to win contracts in the offshore wind market by addressing cost, high volume and the increasing size of turbines.
The speaker faculty contains the cream of the developers working offshore today; RES Offshore, RWE Innogy and Vattenfall highlighted by an exclusive case study from Eneco. Pepijn Docter, Senior Contract Manager, Eneco shares in-house cost benefit analysis criteria with the entire supply chain.
More than just presentations, this lead B2B event brings discussion to the table. Working groups will address the critical issues the audience identify to provide tangible solutions to the most pressing challenges faced today.
