Wind Consultancy

Home » Wind Consultancy

OWC was founded in 2011 as one of the world’s first dedicated offshore wind consultancies, with a mission to support the development and innovation of offshore wind energy across the world. Since that time, OWC has expanded to support all wind power projects across their lifecycle, whether onshore, offshore, bottom-fixed or floating.

Our comprehensive portfolio of technical advisory and engineering consultancy services supports all types of stakeholders across the full value chain of a wind project.  Our global team works to identify origination opportunities and then optimise and de-risk projects at every stage of a windfarm project’s lifecycle, with expertise covering all phases, work packages and all critical components, from wind turbine generators (WTGs) to cables, foundations and electrical substations.   

Partner to Global Offshore Wind Development  

Having grown from our initial base in the UK to a presence spanning 14 countries and counting, OWC stays true to its commitment to grow into the offshore wind markets of tomorrow.  

Currently, OWC serves all the world’s leading and emerging wind power markets. We work with developers, operators, contractors, governments and government bodies, as well as investment funds, banks, and insurers, insurers, helping them make the most informed decisions and putting their best foot forward in bringing new wind power projects to life.  

In offshore wind, OWC has significant experience in market entry and origination, supporting clients in participating and succeeding in offshore wind auction processes, either with a range of technical studies and advisory services or with a more comprehensive package of support.
