    Group formed to help Scots firms benefit from offshore floating wind projects

    A new group has been set up to make sure Scotland’s energy supply chain companies benefit from new floating offshore wind projects in Scotland and the UK. The announcement this week from Prime Minister, Boris Johnston, that the UK now has a 1GW floating target by 2030 further cements the role of floating offshore wind in the UK’s drive to become the “Saudi Arabia of offshore wind power” and is tremendous news for the supply chain. The group has been formed as a subgroup of DeepWind, Scotland’s supply chain cluster. DeepWind is currently managed by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to help cement Scotland’s and the UK’s lead role in the development of offshore wind. The new subgroup will be co-chaired by Dr. Andronikos Kafas from Ocean Winds and Julia Roope from Fugro and involves more than 200 members of the DeepWind cluster.
