India Offshore Wind

When: Wednesday 29 November 2017, 09:30 – 17:00

Where: New room name is D204, Elicium 2nd floor

Open to: All participants

India has a huge unexplored potential of offshore wind as identified in the current “Facilitating Offshore Wind in India” project. Presently a 200 MW demonstration windfarm is under tender preparation in the “First Offshore Windfarm Project for India” for operation from 2021. Both projects are prepared in cooperation between India and EU. The present workshop is also prepared as part of this cooperation.

The workshop is managed by FOWPI, which is implemented by the company COWI on behalf of EU. In FOWPI European knowledge and experience of offshore wind is transferred to Indian stakeholders including MNRE and NIWE.
