Offshore Wind Manufacturing Opportunity

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.

The factsheets cover the following areas:

  • Secondary Steel
  • Anchor and Mooring Systems
  • Cable Protection Systems
  • Cables and Accessories
  • Corrosion Protection Systems

There will be opportunity to engage with developers along with available supply chain support and how to access this from partner organisations. Full agenda details to follow.

Please note that these events are aimed at the supply chain in the first instance. Other interested parties may register however due to restricted availability supply chain companies will be given priority.
