Offshore Wind

Global energy trends are shaping how governments and developers strategically adapt their business models to find the balance between meeting current energy demands and investing in a sustainable future.

RPS has become an established, leading provider of professional services to the offshore wind industry since its inception in Europe in the early 2000’s.

Across the asset lifecycle

As the industry has matured and costs have reduced, new offshore wind markets have begun to emerge globally. RPS has a long history supporting developers in Offshore Wind – delivering smart solutions to their complex development goals.

Fast forward to 2020 and RPS now successfully delivers support and advice to developers, governments, their advisors, and contractors internationally - across Europe, the US, Australia and increasingly the emerging markets of Asia.

Our breadth of services allows our teams to sit alongside our clients throughout the asset lifecycle, providing international standard advice.
