The Earth faces an energy crisis which is compounded by the effects on our atmosphere that burning of fossil fuels is having. According to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, our global population is steadily increasing and is estimated to reach 9.7 billion people by 2050. As our energy companies and governments invest in additional power sources, we all need to think about the world we are creating for these future generations.
Providing a clean and sustainable energy source for more than 9 billion people is a huge challenge meaning renewable energy sources need to be a much more prominent portion of the energy mix. Wind has a proven track-record of producing low-cost, reliable, clean and sustainable energy and is cementing the role of renewable energy in our global energy mix.
Siem Offshore Contractors is invested in renewable energies and our primary installation spread, the Siem Duo, has been designed and built specifically for the offshore renewable energy market. Although initially focused on wind energy we are equally anticipating market developments in the fields of wave and tidal and other marine technologies such as floating offshore wind and are now a global supplier, in partnership with our parent company Siem Offshore, of renewable energy ship solutions.
