EMPLOYMENT AND DEVELOPMENT
Offshore wind farms will create and support highly skilled jobs – engineers, building contractors, surveyors, scientists and craftspeople - at a local and national level. Offshore wind projects can help revitalise multiple manufacturing sectors and ports in the areas concerned, and will be an incredible driving force for the creation of entire value chains and the premise of supporting a stable, qualified workforce for decades.
The offshore wind industry already employs tens of thousands of workers in Europe. Wind energy projects typically require hundreds of different products and components. Skilled labor is required to build, assemble, and maintain wind turbines and the infrastructure that supports them.
Wind is one of the natural sources in which our country is rich, especially in areas now considered disadvantaged.
