Collaborating for Growth
Developing a competitive UK supply chain
"The UK can be proud of its world-leading offshore wind industry. Through continued collaboration between Government, industry and academia, innovation in technology combined with targeted policies and frameworks have not only enabled the industry’s rapid growth, but also unlocked the steep cost declines which the sector has delivered, surpassing even our own expectations.
As our industry has grown organically, so too has the domestic supply chain, with the UK now home to large component facilities such as blade manufacturing, as well as cable factories, smaller component providers and services such as surveys and offshore logistics.
But despite the UK’s status as the world leader in Offshore Wind, there is more that we can do to build on our successes, creating world-beating supply chains that will compete and win in the growing global market for this vital technology.
OWIC members are committed to supporting growth of the UK supply chain and it is great to see these latest examples of how they continue to find new and innovative ways to achieve this."
