Supply Chain

 

Wales is home to a world class supply chain to support all your project needs

Supply Chain

From consultancy and advisory services through to build, operational and decommissioning services, Wales can offer a complete supply chain for developers. Wales has the potential to be a world-leader in the marine energy market – as a significant generator and, just as importantly, as an exporter of marine energy knowledge, technologies and services.

Services in Wales

Pembrokeshire is already home to an energy sector supply chain and workforce which supplies 25% of the UK’s petrochemicals, 30% of the UK’s gas requirements and includes steel fabricators, marine and other engineering specialisms, boat builders, and ship repairers. These skills are transferable and will be of immediate benefit to the renewables industry looking to base their project close to an abundant marine energy resource.

Anglesey also has an established energy sector with the Wylfa Nuclear Power Station, hydroelectric power stations and offshore wind farms including Gwynt y Môr – the second largest operating offshore windfarm in the world. Local construction companies have benefited from all of these energy projects, and have diversified their skills which will suit marine energy developers targeting the area.

Supply Chain Project

In 2017 Marine Energy Wales were awarded funding from LEADER and the Sustainable Development Fund to investigate the potential for supply chain companies to diversify into the marine energy sector. The project assessed the supply chain capabilities of Pembrokeshire companies with the potential to diversify into the marine energy industry, and provided stakeholder engagement and ‘Meet the Buyer’ opportunities for these companies. 

Through this work Marine Energy Wales identified the extent to which relevant companies were knowledgeable about the marine energy sector and the associated opportunities, and whether they were capable or had the potential capability to supply the offshore energy sector. MEW also investigated the perceived gaps and barriers preventing growth in the sector.
