Monobase Wind, a key player in the renewable energy sector, recently had the privilege of meeting with Dutch Minister of Climate & Energy, Rob Jetten, during his visit to Cork, Ireland. David Hoek and Erwin van Berkel represented Monobase Wind at this significant encounter, which took place in September 2022 at an event hosted by Cork County, City, and Chamber.
The meeting provided an opportunity for a fruitful discussion on critical developments in the offshore wind power sector, with a particular focus on the recent agreement between Minister Rob Jetten and his international counterparts from various North Sea countries. Together, they outlined an ambitious plan to generate a staggering 260 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2050 within the North Sea region.
