The timing of this summer’s IPF Conference (International Offshore Wind Partnering Forum) couldn’t be any better for the launch-pad of America’s major move into offshore wind energy - according to leading geotechnical and structural specialists, Wood Thilsted.

“This premiere offshore wind energy conference will be looked upon as a historic Who’s Who assembly,” says Wood Thilsted USA President, Matt Palmer, who has worked in the industry for over 20 years.

“As much as we all achieve online," said Palmer, “this is a golden opportunity to meet up face to face, at a time when the US offshore wind industry is finally all set for lift off”.

He added: “IPF is a must-attend event for anyone with an interest in the future of offshore wind, because that future is now. It’s all happening. People will look back at IPF 2021 as a truly breakthrough conference that they can be proud to have been part of. For those of us who have always believed in the industry, this is such an exciting time, with the doors now wide open for business. People and the environment across the world will benefit from the huge expansion in offshore wind”.

Palmer pointed to the new Vineyard Wind project off the Massachusetts coast, for which Wood Thilsted provided the detailed design.

“This one project alone will create around 3,600 jobs”, he continued. “2021 is a milestone year for offshore wind. Throughout IPF, an amazing amount of business will be on the table”.

Hosted by the Business Network for Offshore Wind, IPF runs from August 24-26 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, the largest exhibition and meeting facility in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
