About this event

The Scottish Supply Chain has a major opportunity to further exploit the offshore wind market. Therefore, ETZ are partnering up with Scottish Enterprise with delivery partner EIC, to provide a deep dive 5 mini masterclass series on the recently developed high value manufacturing offshore wind factsheets. These cover different aspects of some fixed but mostly floating offshore wind projects. The factsheets are there to help companies assess where their own skills and experience can be applied to these offshore wind components with detailed descriptions of the individual areas of opportunity. The factsheets include the weights, lengths and quantities of many of the most common sub components in both fixed and floating offshore wind. These are intended to provide information for companies wishing to enter the offshore wind supply chain.

This masterclass will take a deep dive into the CORROSION PROTECTION factsheet. 

Corrosion Protection Systems protect equipment above and below the water line from corrosion. One or more forms of corrosion protection can be used to protect the substructure to the extent that is required, such as a paint barrier with cathodic protection.

Join us on Wednesday 26 June at the Marcliffe Hotel in Aberdeen for the opportunity to engage with developers along with available supply chain support and how to access this from partner organisations. Full agenda details to follow.
