In July 2009 the Crown Estates announced the possibility of extensions to Round 1 and 2 projects being granted and the developers of these projects had until the end of Dec 09 to make applications for these extensions. Expect some announcements regarding these in the near future Round 1 and 2 Project Extensions

European Market Requirements to 2020 Over 200 projects with an overall target of over 100 GW Based on 5MW Capacity WTG gives 20,000 WTGs to be installed Services provided in the UK can be exported to the European and Global Market place
Services Required for the UK Market Foundation Fabrication and Installation Wind Turbine Generator Supply and Installation Substation Platform Supply and Installation Cable Supply and Installation both offshore and onshore Electrical infrastructure supply and commissioning both offshore and onshore Project Management and Engineering Port Services Installation Vessels Support Vessels – Standby and Crew Support Operation and Maintenance Services Civil engineering works for cable landings including HDD Cables Jointing and Testing Services Survey services Support services to all the activities identified above Technical, Operational and Marine Personnel
Where is the UK market going to get these services ? Presently the majority of the large value supply and services are coming from outside the UK This needs to be changed and a new offshore renewables industry created within this country by UK companies which can eventually be exported globally as we have done in the Oil & Gas sector
How do supply and service companies get into the Market There are no specific requirements from a regularity perspective with regards to getting into the market although having for example the Quality Certification ISO 9001 – 2000 would be an advantage but not having it is not a barrier to entry as your product and service is required in a supply and demand situation and this certification can be achieved at a later date Research the Internet as most of the developers have websites associated with each individual project they are involved in which identifies the key contacts with their organisation Get in contact with various associations like Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group, Subsea UK, Scottish Renewables, Scottish Enterprise and other UK Regional Agencies, Engineering Industries Council, British Wind Energy Association and the European Wind Energy Association as they can all assist from a supply chain perspective Attend Share Fares like this put on by Scottish Enterprise and the Crown Estates Attend conferences like the All Energy (Aberdeen in May 10) and the British Wind Energy Offshore Conference (Liverpool in June 10)
The Market Summary It is here now and we need majority UK content Requires Construction Supply and Service Companies both Onshore and Offshore Needs experienced Construction and Technical Personnel both Onshore and Offshore There is the opportunity to expand into Europe and Globally
