Energy firm Vattenfall has awarded Norfolk-based Gibb Safety & Survival, part of Gibb Group, a contract to provide protective clothing, safety, and survival equipment to keep workers safe across its eleven UK wind farms.
Ørsted, the world's largest offshore wind farm developer, is ramping up its investment in renewables to $57 billion by 2027, seeking to become a global leader in green energy and fend off growing competition.
Ambitions for offshore wind are ramping up across the globe. Final investment decisions hit an all-time high last year, a record number of new alliances were formed and markets including the EU, China, Japan, and South Korea committed to new or more ambitious climate targets. Everything, it seems, is scaling up – including the turbines.
When U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration approved the country’s first major offshore wind farm this month, it billed the move as the start of a new clean energy industry that by the end of the decade will create over 75,000 U.S. jobs.
