Meet the Belgian Offshore Wind Industry
Working together for a strong Offshore Industry in Belgium
A lot of opportunities for Belgian companies
The sixth edition of Belgian Offshore Days (17 & 18 March 2021) will be hosted by Belgian Offshore Cluster at the historical Wellington Racetrack in Ostend.
Belgium remains a pioneer in offshore wind energy in Europe. The Belgian Offshore Days celebrates its 6th anniversary and will surprise its visitors with a fascinating program.
The fair gives the Offshore Wind industry a forum and encourages the collaboration between Belgian and International companies.
During this event, a conference will be held with focus on “Increasing value by data driven innovation in the offshore windfarm lifecycle”. Next to the conference a B2B meeting will enable participants to establish relations with new business partners across the entire offshore wind supply chain.
Belgian Offshore Days is initiated by Belgian Offshore Cluster www.belgianoffshorecluster.be.
