Wind Handling equipment from SH Group

SH Group expands business areas to the offshore wind segment by using their already existing knowledge and competencies within their 20 years of operating in the oil and gas industry to seek new challenges and gain further market share.

Slowly but surely the floating offshore wind energy sector is becoming more and more important, particularly because of the fact that the number of locations with shallow waters suitable for fixed-bottom foundations is limited. Floating wind is turning into a highly scalable future energy source because the wind resource in deep waters is extensive and offers a significant potential for marine renewable energy development and growth to many countries.
