The history of High Wind

High Wind was organized for the first time in Stavanger 4 November 2020. The Conference has a unique focus on the entire value chain for the offshore wind industry. High Wind is located in the Norwegian Energy Capital Region Stavanger, with its unique industry connected to the energy and maritime sectors. We currently experience a rapid transition towards the offshore wind industry, both in the international markets and in the emerging Norwegian market.
