Royal Academy of Engineering (UK) (RAEng) 2011To learn more about the opportunities and challenges for the UK’s offshore wind supply chain, The Royal Academy of Engineering gathered together leaders from across the industry – developers, suppliers, financiers, policymakers, port owners and education providers – at a roundtable discussion on 11 March 2011. This document summarises the conclusions from that roundtable – making recommendations in four key areas: Infrastructure, Skills, Investment and Health and Safety. In particular, the report recommends that the Government does the following: 1. Support UK businesses that have already secured opportunities within the sector; 2. Engage with businesses planning to enter the market and help them to understand the industry; 3. Explore opportunities for UK companies unaware of the sector, matching gaps in the supply chain to the capabilities of businesses.
