FOWT 2023: the world’s largest event dedicated to floating offshore wind turbines.

Co-organized by the Sea Innovation Cluster Pôle Mer Méditerranée and the French Wind Energy Association (France Energie Eolienne) and co-founded by CCIAMP, the 10th edition of FOWT Conference will bring together the sector’s leading experts, researchers and industry leaders will meet for 3 days to exchange views on the latest technological innovation and research in floating offshore wind energy during 2 days of conferences and 1 academic day on a central theme which is: “a global commitment”.

The past few years have seen the confirmation of the worldwide acceleration of the floating wind industry. FOW is now an opportunity across the world for countries to meet their renewable energy goals and for industry players to deploy their new technologies. We have seen a number of strong commitments from countries such as Australia, the United States, South Korea and Japan.

Beyond the worldwide race to implement commercial floating farms, we are also seeing a commitment from a diversity of stakeholders and industries involved in the deployment of FOW. Stakeholders also must take a holistic approach to FOW objectives, not only focusing on GW output but also on environmental, financial, and political concerns. This theme will be addressed through a series of highly technical and academic sessions, as well as through the plenary sessions:

  • Reindustrialization through local added value
  • Open to outsiders: translating neighboring industry knowledge and innovations to FOW development
  • O&M and decommissioning
  • Consolidation of floater technologies to satisfy non-recourse project financing criteria
  • Minimizing carbon footprint

A true international event

  • Over 50% of foreign attendance expected ; many foreign delegations and companies have already confirmed their presence.
  • 3 days of plenary sessions and a technical tour : World-renowned speakers and experts will be sharing their latest findings and observations.

A privileged meeting place for business

  • +1200 attendees expected (physical and online edition)
  • Structured “meet the buyer” and B2B meetings for registered participants : a matchmaking platform to connect suppliers and top international buyers from pilot farms and future commercial parks.
  • An exhibition space for sponsors offering their products / services.
  • Networking time arranged between conferences and during cocktails.


A market accelerating approach

The objective of FOWT is to further the advancement of floating wind and to accelerate its implementation into the global renewable energy mix. This event is meant to promote constructive discussions between all actors and stakeholders of this emerging industry. Hence the affordable registration fee and the “no pay to speak policy” implemented by the organization committee.
