01: Offshore Wind Farm Elements and Technology

Offshore wind online training course

This course will be your introduction to offshore wind project development

What you will learn 


This course will be your introduction to offshore wind project development, starting with a brief history of the offshore wind industry and the current and projected industry status. The course will also cover the elements of an offshore wind project, focusing on the latest technical developments related to turbines, foundations, cables and offshore substations. We’ll also have an overview of the offshore wind project development process, including the project lifecycle, decision-making processes, and key technical drivers. You will also be given a comprehensive look on the current status of the offshore wind industry, in the U.S., the key opportunities and challenges in building a new industry, and what lessons we’ve learned from Europe could work in the U.S. 

Who should attend?

  • Individuals who would like to understand the offshore wind farms from generation to grid
  • Industry professionals wishing to deepen their knowledge of offshore wind structures, such as wind turbine generator models, foundation concepts
  • Individuals or companies involved in large infrastructure projects who wish to venture into offshore wind development/investment
  • Any other professionals who wish to benefit from DNV GL’s offshore wind technical knowledge
