Offshore renewables will be a central part of the UK's drive towards net zero, and shipping will be central to their success.

Currently the UK has almost 2300 offshore wind turbines with six more projects with the potential to generate power for more than seven million homes have been authorised.

It is vital though that while seeking to improve the UK's offshore wind capacity we maintain navigational safety and avoid poorly location developments, which can pose risks to shipping. The Chamber works to ensure that the views of shipping are at the forefront of decisions on the location of new offshore wind farms.

As well as safety we must also ensure that vessels are not required to weave between different windfarms increasing journey times, costs and most importantly green house gas emissions.
