This broad category highlights inspiring and commercially driven R&D work across the sector. Whether it's design developments in technical kit such as gearboxes, blades, bearings, advances in vessel design to promote safer servicing and maintenance to ensure turbines remain fit for purpose, or monitoring and software development tell us and the industry about it.
