Webinar No.4

Thursday 25th of June - Joint Cluster Webinar on ScotWind with SDI and Crown Estate Scotland

DeepWind has teamed up with our sister cluster, Forth and Tay Offshore, to deliver a series of webinars over the next few months. These will be developer updates regarding their existing pipeline projects as well as covering any new ones they have added to their portfolios.

The first one in the series, on Thursday the 25th of June at 14.00, will be a bit different from these others as it will be from Crown Estate Scotland (CES) and, given the launch of the ScotWind leasing process on the 10th of June, this should be very topical.

The webinar will kick off with an introduction from Brian MacFarlane of SSE on behalf of the Scottish Offshore Wind Energy Council (SOWEC) and John Robertson from CES will be covering the introduction of the Supply Chain Development Statement (SCDS) into the leasing process. This should be of interested to the whole of the supply chain.   

Here is an extract from the CES ScotWind Launch Summary which describes the purpose of this new SCDS document

‘The Supply Chain Development Statement (SCDS) provides a clear and transparent outline of the anticipated supply chain requirements for each proposed project, and the associated assumptions and dependencies. The SCDS will provide the chance for opportunities to be identified and for barriers and risks to the development of supply chain capability to be reduced.

Applicants to ScotWind Leasing will be required to submit a SCDS, setting out the level and geographic breakdown of supply chain impact they anticipate from their intended project.’

Presenter - Paul O'Brien, Cluster Manager

This webinar sets out the proposed changes under the current UK consultation of the Contract for Difference scheme due to close on the 22nd of May 2020.

Scottish Offshore Wind Market Update

The scale of the offshore wind market in Scotland and the UK is an important factor in the development of an effective supply chain. The UK's overall Sector Deal target was raised to 40GW by 2030 in January 2020 by the UK Government. With only 8.5GW of offshore wind operational in the UK, that gives us a huge target to deliver in the next 10 years. In Scotland we have only delivered 1GW of the 7.6GW in our pipeline so again a tremendous opportunity for the DeepWind supply chain members yet to come.    

Below is the latest DeepWind update for members on the current Scottish market and pipeline projects along with a projection on future projects.
