ED BLOG: Figuring out how companies in NL can pursue work in the offshore wind industry

December 4, 2019 | Written By: Kieran Hanley

Following up on a workshop that we held in October exploring opportunities in the offshore wind industry, next week we are hosting an info session that zeros in on how companies can penetrate the supply chain.

This past year, NEIA and our friends over at Marine Renewables Canada (MRC) commissioned research to give us insight on what types of companies are best equipped to make the leap into offshore wind. NEIA focused on supply chain penetration through European channels, while MRC targeted the emerging market in the United States. We’ve decided to share this information with each other so that we can each get the complete picture for our respective (and mutual!) members; our info session next week mimics one delivered in Halifax earlier in the Fall.

We have some interesting information to share that we feel can help firms decide whether or not the industry is worth further investigation for them. And if it is… both NEIA and MRC have programming in place that can help your business in that regard that we can talk about.

Why is this worth at least a glance? Well, the global offshore wind energy industry is expected to grow over 650% between 2017 and 2030. And the industry is no slouch in the present-day. The supply chain will need added capacity to support this growth, and our previous work tells us that many firms from the Atlantic region have the skills and experience required to make a go of it.

Drop by for the quick info session next week, and hear from a company that has already had some success in offshore wind (Pangeo Subsea). Register here.
