Cornwall Trade and Investment, in collaboration with Celtic Sea Power and the Department for International Trade, is leading a trade delegation to Wind Energy Hamburg this week (Sep 27-30).

Wind energy is a leading event focused on global on and offshore wind, bringing together major players across the wind industry and associated sectors.

This event not only provides a great opportunity for Cornwall-based Celtic Sea Power to highlight the advances being made in the region regarding floating offshore wind, it also provides seven Cornish businesses with an invaluable opportunity to showcase their marine and renewable energy technologies to an international audience, meet potential customers, and network with peers.

Matt Hodson, chief operating officer at Celtic Sea Power, said: “Floating offshore wind (FLOW) is one of the world’s fastest-growing renewable energy sectors, and ambitions for the Celtic Sea, coupled with ‘Scotwind’, will make the UK the biggest FLOW market.

“Wind Energy Hamburg provides the perfect opportunity to highlight its significance on a world platform, as well as meet potential partners, collaborators and the wider supply chain.”

Delegates from Cornwall include Solis Marine, Submarine Technology Ltd, Nerth Ltd, Tug Dock, Reflex Marine, the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group and Morek. They will have the chance to meet Germany’s leading wind energy trade associations, including developers, and potential collaborators and customers. They will also meet contacts from the world’s biggest offshore wind markets including Norway and Japan. 

“We’re delighted to be supporting businesses from Cornwall’s marine renewables sector to attend Wind Energy Hamburg, added Cornwall Trade and Investment director, Nicola Lloyd. “The event provides an excellent opportunity to showcase Cornwall’s expertise internationally, enabling further growth and opportunities for the sector in the region.”
