Event description

Description

This session will assess recent industry developments with an insight into the key challenges and opportunities for Scottish offshore wind suppliers. It will cover what can be done to achieve lower costs, which technologies and skills are required and how companies could collaborate in order to win business.


Industry overview
This session will provide an overview of existing projects and future developments in the UK offshore wind industry.

UK Clean Growth Strategy and Industrial Strategy
Find out how the UK government has developed plans to work with energy industries, stakeholders and regulators.


Competition – Understanding your market to be business ready
Scottish suppliers must recognise and respond to the needs of their customers to compete on a global scale. This session will suggest how businesses can demonstrate their propositions and how they add value to the offshore wind supply chain. The good news is that tough competition is one of the best motivations to innovate!


Innovation – Doing business differently
Working collaboratively to achieve a ‘Team Scotland’ brand could result in more Scottish content in the supply chain. Find out why ‘working with the enemy’ could enable greater scale, reduce project risk and achieve a greater marketing presence for the Scottish offshore wind supply chain.


Skills
Today’s employees need a new set of skills, talents and training to succeed in an increasingly global, competitive and high-tech economy. There will be a company who will share their experience of transferring expertise developed in the oil and gas sector to the offshore wind industry. They will highlight how they have re-skilled their workforce to adapt to new markets and how this has helped them secure major contracts.


Who is this event for?
This event is for Scottish-based supply chain companies looking to win business in the offshore wind industry.
