A new brochure bringing together the latest East of England statistics, case studies of business success and maps pinpointing existing and future offshore wind farms has been launched at Global Offshore Wind.

The 12-page brochure, produced by TMS Media, was launched at the East of England Energy Zone (EEEZ) stand at the RenewableUK event and features case studies on 3sun Group, James Fisher Marine Services, Stowen CleanEnergy, Sembmarine SLP and Pipeshield International.

Steve Scott, managing director of TMS Media, said: “We have worked with the offshore wind supply chain since its early days here and it has been fascinating watching our region become a global-leader in such a fast-paced industry. It is changing the landscape on our coast, economically and literally, with a long pipeline of investment ahead.”

Diverse supply chain

As part of partnership efforts to drive investment and business in offshore wind across the region, Norfolk County Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council organised the stand to highlight the diverse and experienced supply chain in the area.

Local businesses on the stand included Peel Ports Great Yarmouth; Stowen; SSCS; Proserv; Rhenus Offshore Logistics; OrbisEnergy; and EEEGR (East of England Energy Group).

Cllr Graham Plant, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council and deputy leader for Norfolk County Council said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the region’s significant supply chain and capabilities. We are working with offshore wind farm developers to present upcoming market opportunities - businesses need to be here to benefit from this work”
