The energy transition is happening now at the North Sea. While oil and gas production is phasing out, large offshore wind parks are emerging in the North Sea. Parallel new innovations are happing for e.g. Offshore Hydrogen Wind turbines, integrated digitalization logistics solutions, drone logistics, inspection and repair.
This will transform the offshore energy sector in the Netherlands and the North Sea countries, and have a significant impact on regions such as Den Helder.
The offshore energy transition will impact installation, operation and maintenance activities and will require new expertise and skilled labor.
Which synergies can we use between offshore wind, offshore gas and offshore hydrogen production, can we use offshore infrastructure to bring large scale wind power to shore, for example by means of hydrogen in existing pipelines and what is the impact on the harbor industrial clusters?
