European Maritime Day

Today, May 20th marks European Maritime Day: an occasion to highlight activities at sea and promote the sustainable growth of maritime sectors and regions. One such activity is the production of offshore wind energy, for which Europe is the global leader. European shipowners play a constructive role in advancing the clean energy source in Europe and around the world. In 2018, more than 80% of global installed offshore wind capacity was located in Europe. European shipowners also control 37% of the world’s offshore vessels by gross tonnage and have developed an especially strong reputation for the construction and maintenance of offshore wind parks and related infrastructure. Lithuania also seeks to implement projects that would allow the accumulation and use of offshore wind energy.
