Floating Offshore Wind Port & Vessel Summit Set for Sacramento

The inaugural Floating OSW (Offshore Wind) Port & Vessel Summit is scheduled for Feb. 22 in Sacramento, Calif., presented by Oceantic Network, a nonprofit focused on harnessing the power of offshore wind and other ocean renewable energy.

The summit, according to Oceantic, is expected to convene key decisionmakers and innovators for a day-long West Coast-centric event to set goals, identify challenges and propose pathways to success for critical port infrastructure and supporting the sector’s vessel demands.

Representatives with various entities, including the California Association of Port Authorities, consulting and technology services company ICF, General Dynamics NASSCO and the California Energy Commission are expected to be on hand.

Discussions are scheduled to an overview of the floating offshore wind market; building a network of offshore wind ports; working with public ports, California’s offshore wind strategic plan, floating offshore wind platforms and more.

The event’s keynote speaker is scheduled to be California Energy Commission Chair David Hochschild.
