nkt cables’ f2c (flow to customer) factory in Cologne received an official visit from Environmental Ministers from two regional German government bodies on September 13th. The visit was part of a joint initiative of a group of companies and organizations within the German offshore wind industry. With the group’s focus on innovation, supply chain and climate protection, the visit intended to recognize the contribution of specialist companies like nkt cables for securing clean, renewable offshore wind energy for a sustainable future.
The transition towards harnessing sustainable forms of energy is one of the key technological and political challenges of the coming decades, and political engagement is of great importance to the future development of offshore wind industry. Because of the high startup costs, extra incentives are needed in order to attract investment in offshore wind, and drive sustainable development forward. This depends to a great degree on political decisions made at regional, national and international levels.
