The US wind project pipeline is continuing to grow and the infrastructure to support this booming industry is trying its best to keep up the pace. From ports being able to offer more flexibility, to the availability of trucking companies to handle the demand, all parts of the supply chain are under pressure to be able to effectively cater to this growing industry. In addition to keeping up with demand, there are ongoing challenges around the Jones Act requirements. This session will bring together representatives from across the supply chain to discuss offshore wind development in the Americas, opportunities and where bottlenecks in the supply chain might cause issues for these projects further down the line.

Latin America is certainly a region of opportunity when it comes to projects, specifically power generation. There is no question that the demand is there and power generation is a key development area for this region looking into the future, in particular clean energy. Since 2008, there have been several low carbon pilot projects taking place in Argentina, Costa Rica and Chile and the region is set to play a prominent role in green hydrogen development. This session will look at the current project landscape when it comes to power generation, what the project pipeline looks like, where infrastructure will be needed and where the main opportunities are for the project cargo industry over the coming years.
