Co-organized by the Sea Innovation Cluster Pôle Mer Méditerranée and the French Wind Energy Association (France Energie Eolienne), the eighth edition of the FOWT Conference will take place November 16 to 18 in Saint-Malo, Brittany, France. It will bring together the sector’s leading experts, researchers and industry leaders for three days to exchange views on the latest technological advances in floating offshore wind energy.

The plenary conferences will take place November 16 and 17 and will focus on the theme “FOWT: full speed ahead.” The latest feedback on experience with pre-commercial projects, the launch of calls for tenders and commercial projects, and the dynamics of the sector at the global level will be shared during high-level plenary sessions, bringing together specialists from 30 countries.

The industrialization of the sector and the achievement of price competitiveness are the main challenges of the emerging floating offshore wind sector, whose dynamism is undeniable at the global level.

Once again, this year, the integration of environmental issues through innovative and multipurpose solutions will be part of the program.
