Course Content

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.

Hybrid sessions

Until further notice all training courses will be given in either online or hybrid format. Both hybrid and online training courses consist of live-streaming sessions with continuous interaction between the teachers and all participants. The difference between these formats is that during hybrid sessions a small number of participants can attend physically in our building in Delft, while others attend simultaneously via live-streaming. The content of the lectures and cases during a hybrid session is equal for both physical and online participants. All participants receive a DOB-box beforehand containing all materials required for both online and physical participation.

The maximum number of participants allowed at our training courses will depend on the Dutch COVID-19 regulations and may vary over time. Allotting the available physical seats will be done based on the ‘first come first served’ principle.

If necessary, or if we deem fit, we can and will switch from hybrid to online format to safeguard the health of our clients and colleagues. This implies that also the physical participants will have to attend via the live-streaming session online. We do not advise to wait for a next session to attend physically, as we cannot guarantee safe participation at our building months or even weeks ahead of time. DOB-Academy reserves the right to switch from a hybrid to an online format up to 24 hours before the start of the training course.
