Belgian offshore days organised in Ostend, Belgium brings together more than 50 companies that are active in the offshore wind industry. With four operating wind farms and several in the pipeline, Belgium is one of the leaders in Europe.
The 5th edition of the event saw the participation of over 61 companies and over 1200 international offshore wind professionals. Focus of this edition was development of services needed to maintain existing and future wind farms. It was attended by stakeholders from the Netherlands, Denmark, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Norway, Poland, Russia, and Belgium.
Sarens, one of the leaders in the offshore wind industry, participated in the exhibition and showcased its heavy lift and special transport solutions for the industry. Peter Libert, Area Sales Manager, Sarens Project says, "The exhibition was organized in Belgium, which is the home country of the Sarens group so the sales team already has a solid network in the country. But as the exhibition grows and becomes more international each year, the percentage of international visitors follows this evolution. So we made good contacts with international suppliers for future offshore wind farms in Belgium."
