NOF launches Offshore Wind Projects Database to support supply chain opportunities

NOF, the national business development organisation for the energy sector, has launched a new resource for the UK supply chain to maximise on opportunities in the burgeoning offshore wind sector.

The NOF Offshore Wind Projects Database provides comprehensive access to critical project data, an insight into the industry’s key players, forecasts of market development and supply chain spend.

With the UK and international offshore wind sector growing at a pace, the database offers access to information on more than 900 projects worldwide and a five-year forecast of offshore wind activity.

Database users can review the status of individual projects, the packages awarded to of Tier 1 contractors and updates on Tier 2 contract awards and the involvement of other supply chain companies.

Available as an additional subscription service to NOF members, the database includes a detailed annual offshore wind market and supply chain report and quarterly industry updates with accompanying webinars delivered by industry experts including NOF Consultancy Partners.

Subscribers can also utilise NOF’s complementary business development services including its introduction service to developers, contractors and supply chain companies within the offshore wind sector. 

The database is part of NOF’s continuing support for companies entering and operating in the offshore wind sector. 

Having been involved in the industry since its inception, and forming the North East England’s offshore wind cluster, Energi Coast, which is now one of the eight regional clusters under the Offshore Wind Sector Deal, NOF plays an instrumental role in enabling its members to diversify into the industry and support the decarbonisation of the energy mix.

Paul Livingstone, Head of Business Development at NOF, said: “Offshore wind has been placed as a fundamental component of the world’s net zero emission targets, which presents considerable opportunities for well-connected and market-aware companies. 

“Our Offshore Wind Projects Database provides a comprehensive resource to companies at a pivotal time in the industry’s growth where Round 3 and Round 4 projects will present prime opportunities for supply chain engagement. This service has been launched in response to members requesting better visibility of the project pipeline and the finer detail of key players involve.

Marinus van der Peet, Recruitment and Business Development Manager at NOF member Atlas Inexco, said: “As a manpower supplier to the oil and gas and renewable energy industries, it’s important we have access to the latest projects data and news updates.

“Subscribing to NOF’s Offshore Wind Projects Database, means we no longer have to visit multiple sites to get this information, which saves us a significant amount of time, and the overviews and information provided are really beneficial to us.”
