Frederik Sigetty is the Commercial Programme Manager for Floating Wind at Ørsted, leading the strategic and commercial delivery of floating wind across the offshore business. He previously held a leadership role in Ørsted and JV partner’s ScotWind project, Stromar, which was awarded a lease in early 2022. Prior to joining Ørsted Frederik was a management consultant at Bain & Company and head of section at the Danish Ministry of Finance.
Floating Wind opportunities represent 80% of Europe's total potential offshore wind power capacity. Although the technology is still nascent, there have been some exciting developments this year with the first CfD contract being awarded to a Floating Wind project in June. And the Crown Estate's Offshore Wind Leasing Round 4 plan includes a 4GW allocation of floating wind in the Celtic Sea.
The panel will discuss the best way to roll out floating wind projects at scale, the risks that are involved with them, and the necessary additional port infrastructure required.
