01 February 2019
Posted by: Rob Norris
“The UK Offshore Wind Industry: Supply Chain Review”, commissioned by the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) showcases the wide variety of opportunities available to UK companies of all sizes to get involved in the offshore wind supply chain, providing products and services to projects here and abroad.
The report, by the former McLaren Group CEO and Formula One Team Principal Martin Whitmarsh, provides an independent perspective on the sector, and makes a number of key recommendations for industry and Government.
In order to compile the independent review, Mr Whitmarsh worked over the course of a year with Clark MacFarlane, Managing Director of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy UK, and was assisted by industry experts from innogy, MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and ScottishPower Renewables. The team also organised a series of road show events to engage with a wide range of both existing and potential supply chain companies around the UK.
