Worsening supply chain bottlenecks towards the end of this decade could lead to offshore wind projects getting “into trouble” and not being delivered on schedule, Catrin Jung, head of the offshore business unit at Swedish utility Vattenfall warned Recharge.

“The question for everyone in the market is how the supply chain can grow quickly enough to be able to supply, especially towards 2028/29/30,” Jung said in an interview, adding that the supply chain squeeze will intensify because more and more countries are setting fixed targets for wind at sea.
