Thorsten Ludwig, Holger Seidel, Jochen Tholen (2012): Offshore-Windenergie: Perspektiven für den deutschen Schiffbau, edition 270 der Hans-Böckler-Stiftung, Düsseldorf

 The basic question of this empirical project was, in what way Shipbuilding Industry in Germany participates in the expected boom of the Offshore Wind Energy. Between October 2010 and February 2012, numerous expert interviews were held with actors from Shipbuilding/Maritime Industry, Offshore Wind Energy Industry and politics, plus two case studies (Yards, Windfarm Operators)
