Thank you for a successful event!

In preparation for potential OSW leases in 2024, the Pacific Ocean Energy Trust and Washington Maritime Blue teamed up to host an offshore wind supply chain event on November 16 at the Hilton in Vancouver, Washington. The Summit, which attracted over 200 attendees, provided insights into the state of the offshore wind sector and explored the opportunities for ports and supply chains to support the sector.
