SBM Offshore is a Dutch company, specialized in servicing the offshore oil business. If there is one company well-placed to open up for new offshore business opportunities, it would be SBM Offshore. The company has just expressed its wish to participate in 2 GW floating offshore wind, around the globe.
A traditional oil service company expanding its business into renewable energy, is the best possible sign that the renewable energy transition is working. It also is an enormous boost for floating wind, implying that offshore wind is going global, after so far being confined to the shallow waters of the North Sea.
