In particular considering projected plans for 7GW of floating wind in Europe by 2030, the need for optimised and innovative solutions for complex dynamic cabling keeps growing. With Mariangela onboard, I am confident OWC will become more than ever the cables consultant of choice to support Europe in its plans towards 300 GW of offshore wind capacity by 2050”Daniele Caruso, Principal Project Manager Cables, OWC
