Passionate About North East England
North East England’s geographic location and vast coastline with excellent land and port infrastructure makes it an ideal place to set up a business in offshore wind. North East England has a long history in manufacture and the region’s strengths and heritage as a maritime and industrial powerhouse provides the foundation for a strong and vibrant offshore wind sector. At the heart of regional economic development our Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) have offshore wind as a priority sector in their local industrial strategies.
Working closely with the Energi Coast cluster, both LEPs are proactive in their approach to showcase the dynamic, well established supply chain that exists in the region and to ensure local offshore wind projects such as Dogger Bank Wind Farms and the Sofia Offshore Wind Farm maximise as much local content as possible.
Companies who choose to invest in North East England’s booming offshore wind industry will also benefit from a first-class level of support to help them become established and quickly embedded into the local cluster.
