Responsible development

As responsible developers, our aim is to utilise as many local and UK-based suppliers where reasonably possible during all stages of the development.

Supply chain opportunities exist throughout the ongoing development phase and will, subject to the relevant consents, ramp up significantly through the construction phase and, finally, there will be significant opportunities throughout the long term operational phase which is typically for 25 years.

Meet the buyers

In order to help prepare the supply chain for the opportunities ahead we held a number of virtual ‘meet the buyer’ events in September 2020.  The events were organised on our behalf by NOF and focussed on Tier 2 suppliers from the UK supply chain and providing them with the opportunity to meet our Tier 1 contractors.

The events showcased the opportunities that will be available from the Dogger Bank Wind Farm development.
