SCOTTISH Enterprise and Scottish Development International are to team up with global energy firm Xodus Group to showcase the expertise of Scottish supply chain companies in the offshore wind sector.

The aim of the collaboration is to create a directory and gap analysis which helps Scotland-based suppliers capture a greater share of the burgeoning offshore wind market – forecast to be worth an estimated £30 billion per annum by 2030 – by advertising their experience and capabilities on the new Scottish Industries Directories platform.

Due to launch later this year, it is hoped the website will become a one-stop shop for developers and contractors looking procure services for future offshore wind projects.

Xodus Group is calling for companies with experience in offshore wind or capabilities that could be applied to the sector to sign up to the directory by completing a short questionnaire.

Scott Hamilton of Xodus said: “The aim is to create a comprehensive list which can be utilised in both the domestic and overseas markets.”

Companies should e-mail for more information.
