Are you interested to enter the French offshore wind market or would you like to deepen your existing contacts? Consider joining this virtual mission focusing on the French offshore wind sector!

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, work on the various offshore wind farm projects in France continue as planned. French companies and consortia are currently looking for partners and suppliers for these projects, which means there are plenty of business opportunities for Dutch companies. An overview of  current and future projects will be presented during the webinar sessions.

The Netherlands Business Support Office (NBSO) Nantes, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Paris and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), together with NL associations Holland Home of Wind Energy (HHWE), the Netherlands Wind Energy Association (NWEA), FME Cleantech Holland and Transfer Consultancy will organize a series of events focused on the French offshore wind sector, consisting of a:

  1. Webinar (topic: opportunities for Dutch offshore companies in the French offshore wind sector & current French projects and keyplayers);
  2. Meet-the-buyer meetings;
  3. Digital matchmaking, 1-on-1 business meetings with relevant French companies;

The program will entirely take place online. A more detailed preliminary program can be found at: AGENDA.
