East Lothian businesses are being invited to attend an event to find out more about the business opportunities from the building of the Inch Cape Offshore Wind Farm onshore and offshore substations.
This event will highlight the wide range of opportunities for local firms on the construction, transportation and installation of the project’s onshore and offshore substations, with work expected to start on site early next year.
Speakers will include Duncan Humphries, Package Manger – Substations, Inch Cape Offshore Limited, and Jason Horsfall and Colette Flynn from Siemens Energy Limited, the company responsible for the design and build of the project’s onshore substation at Cockenzie.
Speaking ahead of the event, Nikki Keddie, the project’s stakeholder manager said:
“Having secured the long-term contract for power that we needed to proceed with the project, we are now proceeding with major contract awards ahead of starting work onshore in early 2023.
“It’s important to us to highlight the opportunities for local businesses from the project and we hope East Lothian firms will take this opportunity to hear more about the huge range of services we are likely to require during construction and beyond.”
The event is being held at Musselburgh Racecourse on Tuesday 13 September.
