CWind hosted a delegation of 20 businesses from the south east region of Northern Ireland on Tuesday this week. The delegation, led by Energy Connections NI and hosted by the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) was in the area this week to see first-hand how businesses here have taken advantage of the supply chain opportunities on offer and exchange thoughts on the renewable energy sector with East of England experts.

CWind shared insights into its own experience of growing a business in the offshore wind supply chain with the delegation over coffee and tea at the Brightlingsea Yacht Club. Tim Smith, Sales Manager at CWind presented on the types of services that the industry requires in constructing and maintaining offshore wind farms, highlighting also the regulatory health and safety requirements crucial in the sector. The presentation was followed by a visit to CTruk’s manufacturing facilities in Brightlingsea, where the flagship CTruk 20T MPCs are built.

Among the delegation were engineering companies, fishermen and professional services companies, as well as representatives from First Flight Wind, the consortium developing a wind farm off the coast of Co Down.
