Scottish Offshore Wind Supply Chain Goes Online
Xodus Group is working with Scottish Enterprise and Scottish Development International (SDI) to create a directory of Scotland-based suppliers for the offshore wind market.
The new Scottish Industries Directories platform will include a directory and gap analysis which are expected to help local suppliers capture a greater share of the offshore wind market by advertising their experience and capabilities, Xodus said.
According to the company, it is anticipated that the website will become a one-stop shop for developers and contractors looking to procure products and services for future offshore wind projects.
“This is a great piece of supply chain enabling and will form a directory for developers to use going forward to identify procurement and partnership opportunities in Scotland,” said Scott Hamilton, Principal Consultant at Xodus.
“The aim is to create a comprehensive list which can be utilised in both the domestic and overseas markets. We would encourage every company working in the offshore wind space to get involved.”
Xodus is inviting companies with existing experience in offshore wind or capabilities that could be applied to the sector to sign up to the directory. It is due to be launched later this year.
