EDF Renewables and ESB, joint owners of the Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm, have confirmed the four venues for the project’s series of supply chain events next month.

Scottish businesses interested in being part of the NnG supply chain are invited to register for the events where the project team and Tier 1 contractors will showcase how more local companies can help support the successful delivery of the £1.8 billion project.

The NnG supply chain events will be held on the following dates:

  • Mon 2nd March: Musselburgh – The Brunton
  • Tues 3rd March: North Queensferry, Fife – Doubletree by Hilton
  • Wed 4th March: Dundee – Apex City Quay Hotel
  • Thur 5thMarch: Aberdeen – Pittodrie Stadium

On the day, registration will be open from 08.30am with the events starting at 09.30am and finishing at 3.00pm.

NnG’s project team and Tier 1 contractors (who will be responsible for sub-contracting work) will attend each event to give a comprehensive overview of the scope of work to be delivered throughout the project’s construction and highlight potential opportunities available to the local supply chain.

EDF Renewables and ESB are committed to promoting the Scottish supply chain and have already confirmed that all 54 of NnG’s turbines will be assembled at the Port of Dundee while Scottish engineering firm, BiFab, will manufacture at least eight of the foundation jackets.

Eyemouth Harbour in East Lothian has been named as preferred bidder for NnG’s Operations and Maintenance base, which could create 50 permanent jobs over the 25-year lifetime of the wind farm.

Businesses can register for the supply chain event in their local area by visiting the NnG Offshore Wind website.

Matthias Haag, NnG project director, said: “We’re now in the construction phase for NnG and are on schedule to deliver in 2023 what will be an incredible project for Scotland.
