RWE’s extensive experience in deploying offshore wind has given us an excellent understanding of what is needed to facilitate new technologies, alongside opportunities to invest in people and communities.
But what really excites us are the opportunities that new floating wind technology presents for Scotland. Our ambition is to safely develop, build and operate cost-competitive, commercial-scale projects around the world. To achieve this we are implementing a world-class capability development programme, including extensive supply chain engagement, participation in leading joint industry projects and investment in three high-profile demonstration projects.
Through our involvement in the three floating demonstration projects, we are already building a strong knowledge base which can be the stepping stone to delivering future floating wind projects off the Scottish Coast.
