Floating Wind Challenge

OffshoreWind4Kids is hosting the global Floating Wind Challenge. A challenge to stimulate young engineers to design and build the best floating wind support structure.

 

The first edition was organised in the academic year of 2021/2022 and the final competition was held in the Atlantic Basin of Deltares on 13 May 2022.
