As the final turbine for the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) has been successfully installed, Subsea UK would like to invite you to a lunch and learn with Vattenfall and the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) to hear more about the project and the opportunities for the supply chain as the project going live this summer.

The innovative 93.2MW 11-turbine European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC), developed by Vattenfall-owned Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm Ltd, will trial next generation technology and once operational, boost the industry’s drive to produce competitive clean power. Supported by AREG from inception to development, and benefiting from €40 million of EU funding in 2009, the EOWDC is set for completion and first power this summer. With the installation of the turbines paired with suction bucket foundations being an industry first, project director Adam Ezzamel will present information on the innovation behind the project as well as future opportunities for the supply chain.

Morag McCorkindale on behalf of AREG will provide details on the Europe Leading Blue Energy (ELBE) project, which seeks to position Europe as the world technological and industrial leader in blue energy. AREG is calling for input from companies as it aims to draw up an international strategy for marine energy alongside organisations across Europe. The 18-month project will be implemented by a consortium of organisations, which includes AREG, Flanders’ Maritime Cluster (Belgium), Offshoreväst (Sweden) y (Denmark), under the co-ordination of the Basque Energy Cluster in Spain. It is expected that phase one will create new EU cross-border and cross-sectoral business alliances and will identify business opportunities for SMEs in the emerging global offshore wind, wave and tidal markets. The partners also plan to deliver a strategy for European businesses to enter global markets and create an alliance with a clear focus and which is ready for internationalisation.
