North East offshore wind companies ready to support Sector Deal

The North East’s offshore wind cluster has declared the region “fit and ready” to support the growth of the industry following the launch of the Offshore Wind Sector Deal.


Energi Coast has championed companies involved in the sector’s supply chain since its foundation in 2011 by energy sector business development specialist NOF Energy.


The cluster represents companies working on every element of an offshore wind farm – from design and foundation building through to cable installation and operations and maintenance.


James Ritchie, chairman of Energi Coast and chief executive of Tekmar Group, said: “The Sector Deal for the offshore wind industry is a significant step forward in creating a sustainable industry and providing real value creation to our local supply chain, which is fit and ready to serve our growing sector.


“Offshore wind is a central part of the world’s clean energy future due to its renewed competitiveness and scalability.


“The Sector Deal will support the development of supply chain clusters, such as the maturing Energi Coast group of companies in the North East of England, which builds on a heritage from maritime and subsea oil and gas and have been at the forefront of this exciting renewable sector since its inception.


“This region has been instrumental in the establishment of the UK offshore wind industry and has led the way as a major contributor to local content with innovative subsea and offshore technology.  We hope to increase our role to play as the industry evolves further on the back of this significant Sector Deal.”
