Celtic Sea Ports, Engineering and Infrastructure
Recognising the crucial role of port infrastructure in delivering floating wind opportunities, the Celtic Sea Cluster and British Ports Association, together with key ports, engineering companies and infrastructure owners, are working to collectively agree how to build a floating wind industrial ecosystem for the next 50 years. The ambition is a sustainable industry anchored in the Celtic Sea region transforming the economic base for generations.
