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.
