One of the biggest events in the North American renewables calendar, US Offshore Wind 2022, takes place in Boston, MA next week – and our offshore wind teams are gearing up for a busy week of activity across the city.
The conference takes place on July 18–19 at the city’s Hynes Convention Centre, and some of our key offshore wind personnel will be there to discuss the growth of the US sector. From our Offshore Renewables team, Boston-based Business Development Director Jeff Anderson and Recruitment Consultant Jamie-Leigh Carlin, a specialist in procurement and supply chain roles, will be on hand to discuss permanent opportunities across the entire development and consenting cycle.
Also in attendance is our Houston, TX-based Emma Davies, who recently joined our Offshore Wind Contract team in Houston, TX. Emma’s focus is on helping the industry meet its demand for contract talent, from early development through to construction and completion. Get in touch to arrange a meeting with our team during the conference to find out how we can help drive your pioneering projects with the best specialists. Find out more on our Event page.
Workforce planning and building a skilled talent pipeline will be one of the main talking points at US Offshore Wind 2022. Read our recent analysis, Five Steps Toward Building the US Offshore Wind Workforce, for insight from our expert panel session at the 2022 IPF.
Meet us for networking and socialising at US Offshore Wind 2022
On Day One of the conference, we’re delighted to be co-hosting the famous Offshore Wind Drinks event after the exhibition finishes. If you’re in the industry in the US, chances are you’ve attended this series of informal, grassroots networking events that have been set up to help professionals meet, cooperate, collaborate, and share ideas. Offshore Wind Drinks will be at Cosmica Bar in Boston from 7pm on July 18 – we look forward to seeing you there!
Inspiring the next generation of US green energy leaders with OffshoreWind4Kids
In addition, our colleagues at The Brunel Foundation are sponsoring the OffshoreWind4Kids demo day in Boston, MA on the week of the US Offshore Wind 2022 conference.
OffshoreWind4Kids is the brainchild of William Beuckelaers, a civil and geotechnical engineer working on building offshore wind turbines in Belgium. William organises demo days across the world, where children can get hands-on with small scale offshore wind turbines and learn about various aspects of offshore wind energy. We were delighted to support this offshore educational initiative in its first tour across Scotland and we’re excited to continue our partnership with the OffshoreWind4Kids team as they bring immersive engineering, technology and renewable energy education to Boston. The aim is to teach as many girls as boys about offshore wind and in doing so, encourage girls to consider STEM education, and highlight sustainable career options in the offshore wind sector.
