As projects of this scale represent massive capital investment into local areas, there is considerable opportunity for job creation along the Atlantic coast. Simply Blue Energy will support local job creation at all stages, including by working with the fishing industry to explore opportunities for future employment and by actively encouraging local content in our supply chain.
A range of supply chain opportunities for FOW will be rolled out as the project progresses, from initial consultation and survey work, to port and road infrastructure development, to construction and installation. Ongoing Operation & Maintenance (O&M) contracts will also come on-stream post construction. Local suppliers will be encouraged to participate in all stages and local content will be acknowledged and scored in tendering processes to continually encourage this participation.
