Event description

Description

Market Opportunity:

With over 3.7GW of installed capacity, the UK has more offshore wind capacity than the rest of the world combined, and the sector is set to grow tenfold over the next decade.

In total, the UK offshore wind market is estimated to be worth more than £100 billion over the next 20 years, with £15 billion open to manufacturers in the supply chain, offering a significant and sustained growth opportunity. The opportunity is particularly evident in Kent where Vattenfall are looking to extend the Thanet windfarm.

Business Support:

In order to increase the UK-manufactured content supplied to the offshore wind supply chain, the Government developed GROW:Offshore Wind, a business support programme delivered by MAS, RenewableUK, Grant Thornton and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre at the University of Sheffield.

The programme includes consultancy, technology and funding support tailored for SMEs with the potential to enter the offshore wind supply chain, particularly those that can be involved in the manufacture of components for offshore substations, foundations, transition pieces and undersea cables.

Coupled with this Kent County Council developed the Low Carbon Across the South East (LoCASE) project which aims to provide a consistent, accessible business support programme that helps businesses optimise the use of resources and adopt eco-innovative and low carbon solutions in ways that improve business performance in terms of resilience, profitability and competitiveness, at the same time contributing to the protection and preservation of the environment.

How to Take Advantage:

These workshops have been designed with you the business in mind and will provide you with the latest information concerning the status of the offshore wind projects that Vattenfall are involved in the UK and will include:

  • National and International plans for growth in the offshore wind sector
  • The supply requirements of the sector and how businesses can join the supply chain
  • The Vattenfall tender process and timescales for mobilisation
  • The expertise and funding available to Kent businesses
  • A seminar and one-to-one meeting opportunities with representatives from the Vattenfall procurement team
  • Networking lunch included
