Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm, along with our Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contractors and Highlands and Islands Enterprise, would like to invite local businesses to attend our forthcoming Open4Business supply chain events in Elgin and Wick. Subject to a positive final investment decision, the Beatrice project, which was consented by Marine Scotland in March 2014, and granted an Investment Contract by the UK government in May 2014, is planned for construction in 2016. As well as generating up to 664MW of renewable electricity if constructed, the project is expected to bring a range of socio-economic benefits to both the Moray and Highland regions including job creation, skills training opportunities and opportunities for local businesses through SSE’s Open4Business initiative.

Through supply chain presentations, followed by a networking session with attendees, the events will provide further information on the types of supply chain opportunities that may arise through the construction of the project.

Representatives from the Beatrice project team, SSE’s Open4Business team, our alliance partners, and Highlands and Islands Enterprise will be on hand to provide an update on the latest project information and answer any questions on the day. Speed networking opportunities are also planned. Businesses of all kinds are encouraged to attend.

Event spaces are on a first come, first served basis, and are limited to two representatives per organisation. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
