from building and installing offshore wind farms globally, and from developing
ports and infrastructure for seamless execution, can help to streamline
such projects. This will be useful in spearheading the regional offshore
wind markets development – such as in Japan, Korea, and Vietnam – which
DNV’s team are already supporting,” Zhang concluded.
