NOF Energy, the business development organisation for oil, gas, nuclear and offshore renewables sectors, has entered a new partnership with BVG Associates to support supply chain development.
As one of NOF Energy’s Consultancy Partners, BVG Associates will assist NOF Energy members’ activities in the offshore wind industry.
As part of its support to NOF Energy members, BVG Associates will provide industry intelligence and take part in a number of events. Initially the partners are working together to develop an event for companies looking to enter the emerging United States offshore wind market.
Having opened an office in Detroit, Michigan, BVG Associates in perfectly placed to brief members with the skills, products and services that will be in demand from the infant US sector.
This activity complements NOF Energy’sHouston Network, which is designed to support UK and US members access opportunities in the oil & gas sector.
NOF Energy, which has almost 500 members, operates a Consultancy Partner programme currently made up of four energy analyst and intelligence providers. In addition to BVG Associates, NOF Energy works with Infield Systems Ltd, Douglas-Westwood,KPMG and, most recently, PwC.
Joanne Leng MBE, Deputy Chief Executive of NOF Energy, said: “Through our consultancy partners our members can access the latest advice and industry intelligence from energy markets that meet their business development targets. BVG Associates reputation in the offshore marine and wind sectors is second to none and is a valuable addition to the strong line-up of NOF Energy partners.”
Bruce Valpy, Director of BVG Associates, said: “We have enjoyed a productive relationship with NOF Energy for several years and becoming a Consultancy Partner is an obvious step for us. There is a huge potential for NOF Energy members in the offshore wind market that is only partially tapped. We look forward to working with NOF Energy to redress the balance.”
