I (the main editor of this website) have worked offshore in both oil/gas and the wind turbine industry for 10 years. 

I started putting notes together during some downtime, and over the course of a few trips offshore, and it gathered momentum pretty fast, people wanted to chip in some info, and now, it became a growing resource for people interested in the oil/gas/renewables industry. 

Identities of contributors are somewhat hidden, just in case I have written something or used an image that might affect my, or other peoples jobs.
