Don't just take our word for it...

  • NOF organised a major supplier event on behalf of Dogger Bank Wind Farm working with both Equinor and SSE as the two partners on the project. The event attracted around 300 delegates and gave us an excellent platform to present about the project and more importantly meet key suppliers on a one to one basis. Not only did NOF organise a first-class event, they also managed to attract new and innovative supply chain companies which met our key objectives on the day.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Livingstone and the team at NOF for their sheer Commitment and dedication to their members. Antikytera e - technologies joined NOF in November 2020 and since that time Paul has played a key role in helping us with introductions to Major international companies through his network both in the UK and beyond.

    Paul and the team at NOF have a Culture that put their Members first and will go above and beyond where they can to help. I would encourage anyone who is thinking of joining NOF to do so as we at Antikytera have seen the benefits from day one. It humbles me to be working with an organisation that truly does what it says on the tin.    

    Donal Hanly, Antikytera e-technologies Ltd.

  • Thank you so much NOF team for the coverage you provide – the support is really appreciated. It is simply excellent and we genuinely value it!

Partnerships are important to us

NOF works with many partner organisations for the benefit of members.

Strategic Partners

These are operators, developers and major contractors across the sectors in which we operate. Each Strategic Partner has an engagement plan with NOF and is committed to proactively engaging with our members.

Consultancy Partners

These are the large industry analysts and information providers. Each Consultancy Partner is committed to engaging with NOF and will be visible at some of our larger events where they will present on the industry and the future outlook. This valuable information then allows members to better position their business for future work.
