Value Chain, Supply Chain & Logistics in the Offshore Wind Industry
- Duration in hours: 2 x 4h
- Module level: Foundation
Overview: Over the last 20 years, Offshore Wind Industry has become and essential and fast growing contributor to decarbonized electricity production. It is an industry on its own with its Market, its Value Chain, its Standards and Good Industry Practices. It however remains a new industry in constant organization and structuring. The ultimate objective is to lower the cost of energy produced in order to become a viable actor of the energy transition. The “availability” of the wind turbines is therefore a key condition to reach this objective.
Supply Chain efficiency and Logistics organization are the tools to both increase the production time of the wind turbines and go farer and deeper to find stable winds without affecting the coastal activities.
This course explains how Supply Chain and Logistics organizations are essential to develop the Offshore Wind Industry and maintain its sustainability.
Audience: All actors of the Offshore Wind Industry who are involved in Supply Chain and/or Logistics activities: Contracting-Procurement-Logistics Support.
Deliverables: Upon completion of this course, the attendants will have a deep understanding of the OWI market, its Contractual Strategy and Supply Chain Organization. They will understand the essential necessity to improve turbines availability through an efficient Logistics support.
Certificate: Upon completion of the training participants will be awarded a Certificate of Attendance issued by Adinergy.
