In an effort to optimise the wind farm, Inch Cape is examining its supply chain and considering opportunities to introduce new technologies and innovative ways of working.
We are especially focused on reducing the cost of energy on the project and considering how to reduce construction time, cost and carbon footprint while prioritising health and safety. We hope to work with our suppliers to create new ways of working across the industry and help develop new technologies that will benefit Inch Cape and other projects moving forward.

Inch Cape and its shareholders are committed to working with the supply chain to identify opportunities for local businesses. As well as expressing interest with us directly, we would encourage suppliers to engage with their local Offshore Wind Cluster.

Substations Supply Chain Event
Having secured a Contract for Difference in Allocation Round 4, Inch Cape Offshore Limited is moving from development to delivery and recently announced the award of the project’s substation package to the Siemens-Iemants consortium.
The contract includes both the onshore substation, which will be sited at the former power station site at Cockenzie, East Lothian, with early onsite works expected to commence early 2023.
Siemens Energy and Iemants will supply the wind farm’s offshore substation platform, with fit-out and assembly of the OTM and its jacket foundation taking place at the Smulders yard in Wallsend, Newcastle, before transportation by sea to the wind farm location off the Angus coast.
This event, held at Musselburgh Race Course on 13 September, highlighted the huge range of opportunities for local businesses on the construction, transportation and installation of Inch Cape Offshore Limited’s onshore and offshore substations, and the current timelines for the delivery of this key work package.
