Denmark is something special in the blue energy sector. Therefore, it is the Government's ambition that the Danish part of the North Sea should be offshores answer to "Silicon Valley" with great value for the Danish society. This was written by Lars Christian Lilleholt and the CEO of Esvagt in a debate.

"Denmark has international strengths in both energy and in maritime. With internationally renowned companies in both places, it is no surprise that we are second to none in the intersection of the two," said Lars Christian Lilleholt, Energy, Supply and Climate minister (V) and Søren Nørgaard Thomsen, CEO of Esvagt and Chairman of the Danish Shipowners' Association 2010, in an opinion piece in JydskeVestkysten before the general meeting in "The Danish Shipowners' Association of 2010" which will be held today.

They point out that Denmark can achieve something special in the blue energy sector - the maritime offshore, which serves both gas, oil and offshore wind in the North Sea in particular. And with OECD's prediction that offshore wind will experience a global value growth of 25 percent a year up to 2030, the potential is huge.

"The government's ambition is that the Danish part of the North Sea will be offshore's Silicon Valley with great value for the Danish society," it is written in the debate post.

Therefore, the Minister and the Esvagt boss look forward to the final recommendations from the maritime growth team, which have been working on initiatives to lift the maritime competitiveness for almost a year.
It is expected that growth team's recommendations will be presented before the summer.
