Flipchart Friday is part of Foundation Ex.
We think industry events can be boring. No one likes a sales pitch from a suit. Foundation Ex is different. We are on a mission to challenge conventional thinking and spark genuine technical debate. And have some fun while doing it.
We bring together industry leaders from around the globe to discuss the hot topics in offshore wind development. Our experienced panellists have thrown a light on the necessary innovation the industry needs for the decade ahead.
The offshore wind industry has a huge task ahead if it is to reach anywhere close to the global GW targets that have been set by governments. We see the route to success lies through the sharing of knowledge to drive change.
The heart of Empire Engineering are our Engineers, we think they are the finest in the business.
