Content: Offshore wind project development training course

With the ‘Offshore Wind Project Development’ training course you will get accustomed to the key points in the development plan which are needed to prepare a tender. This training course will focus on the most important decision-making moments in the different phases of tender preparation. The risks and effects of these decisions are highlighted, with particular attention on the effect of covering risks on a wind farm profit. The training course will review the following phases of the tender procedure: project set-up, planning and financing, engineering, installation and maintenance. For each phase, the stakeholders and external influences will be discussed, including the economic, legal and political influences.

The training course consists of seven lectures and a continuous development game, which will be alternated throughout the training course. In this game, you will work on a development plan from the developer’s perspective. The game and lectures will cover the different facets necessary when preparing a tender.

At the end of the last day of the training course, several scenarios will be used to test your development plan. The outcome of these scenarios will show the effect of your choices on a wind farm profit.


The ‘Offshore Wind Project Development’ training course and its materials are written and given entirely in English. However, it will be possible to give the lectures in Dutch if all the participants are Dutch.
