Ocean Energy: Oil, Wind & Tidal
The making of a (supply chain) star
Wind is “the tech of choice,” the International Energy Agency said recently, just as a new report by the University of Delaware outlined the opportunity in U.S. of shore wind: 5,000 miles of of shore cabling and 1,700 turbines, it turns out, are bundled into current state-side plans. Yet, serious observers of the f rst U.S. of shore wind installations saw inef ciency: unwieldy lif s; few specialist vessels on-hand; and cables were “just cables.” Supply chain innovation, people say, lags other industries.
