Offshore Wind Supply Chain Opportunities Survey 2019

The Offshore Wind Sector has the potential to bring significant business opportunities to companies in our area and we want to ensure that they are able to capitalise on them.

To ensure that we are able to identify the current and potential offshore wind supply chain companies and their capabilities, we are asking you to complete this survey, by identifying what services you currently offer in other sectors that you believe could be transferred into offshore wind now, services which could be adapted for the offshore wind sector with appropriate support and services which you aspire to offer the sector in the future.

Thank you for your time and we encourage you to take 15 minutes to complete this survey, click here.

This survey will be followed up by further work, undertaken by Scottish Enterprise, to qualify in more depth your company’s full capabilities and allow the Forth & Tay Offshore Cluster to pull together a searchable database to be used by the developers and their key contractors. We want Scotland to maximise every opportunity brought by this new emerging sector.

The Forth & Tay Offshore Cluster was set up in 2018 to drive forward supply chain opportunities from the emerging offshore renewables sector. This partnership is made up of Angus, Borders, Dundee City, East Lothian and Fife Councils working together with Scottish Enterprise and the offshore wind developers.

There are more than 2.5GW of consented projects now situated in the Forth and Tay estuaries and others likely to follow as part of round four leasing:

· Seagreen Alpha and Bravo developments, to be operated by SSE, which combined will consist of up to 150 turbines, around 27-38km off the Angus coastline.

· Inch Cape development, which will be operated by Red Rock Power, also off the Angus coastline, will total no more than 110 turbines.

· The Neart na Gaoith, which will be operated by EDF, is east of the Fife Ness coastline and will be the first of the region’s offshore wind projects to be generating across a maximum of 54 turbines.
