Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

you can argue that more of the construction risk comes from the offshore work phase, which is definitely not in the hands of the turbine manufacturer. The risks are that of delay, cost overrun and, if problems appear later (like grouting) further costs.

The cables and electrical equipement can be single points of failure with a massive impact on the project.

So altogether, we do try to finetune the turbine contracts (supply & installation on one side, and long term operations on the other), but we can't ignore the rest at all.
