OWC is a dynamic company with the backing of an established parent company. This has allowed us to achieve rapid growth while maintaining our flexible, small company culture. Join us and be a crucial part of developing and delivering offshore wind projects worldwide.

OWC, a Company part of the ABL Group headquartered in London, UK, is a specialised and globally focused consultancy offering project development services, owner’s engineering, and technical due diligence to the offshore wind industry. OWC’s core team possesses strong industry expertise, which dates to the first offshore wind farm development in the UK.

We seek to transition and navigate our clients towards a more sustainable future. We empower our people – we celebrate the diverse and inclusive work culture.

Would you like to play your part?

  • Provide preliminary Metocean studies for feasibility and early design considerations.
  • Support the package management for the wind resource and Metocean package.
  • Contribute to Metocean studies from feasibility phase to detailed design on behalf of the client and support design process.
  • Contribute to the development of the Metocean part of Design Basis part A and address comments from all stakeholders (e.g., Project internal packages, LTA, project certifier, etc.).
  • Review Metocean study reports as part of technical due diligence projects.
  • Giving technical input to projects in your area of knowledge/expertise.

Support or attend conference participation to represent services and capabilities to customers and stakeholders of the industry sector.
