ITL Focus: Resilience & Sustainability

This Month's Focus Topic 

Resilience & Sustainability

"No insurance, no finance. No finance, no project. No project, no transition."

And the insurance piece of the puzzle can be so very complicated.

Think about an offshore wind farm. The turbines have to be erected under difficult conditions. The mast may stick 260 meters out of the water. Each blade can be 100 meters long, so the rotor can be 220 meters long.

Adding to the complications: Installations are tailored to their environment, so even if you can figure out all the technical issues on one project, you can't just apply that learning across the board.
