Vattenfall is committed to ensuring that our approach to project procurement and investment supports local businesses to enter and prosper in the renewable energy and green job sectors.
We have a good record of working with local supply chains, developing local skills in the areas in which we operate, and investing in local infrastructure.
By partnering with business and training agencies in the region, we hope to ensure Norfolk gains significantly from the major investment that comes from multi-billion pound schemes like Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas.
As part of this commitment we will require contractors involved with the Norfolk Vanguard and Boreas projects to work to maximise, where they can, the use of local business.
In March 2018, in collaboration with East of England Energy Group (EEEGR), we began meeting with local businesses because we believe early engagement with the supply chain will assist us in producing an optimised contracting strategy for the Norfolk projects, and we know that local companies bring valuable local knowledge and expertise.
The first version of our Supply Chain Information Pack gives more information on the background to the project, the timelines for construction, the range of opportunities available and links to sources of support and advice for local companies.
Initial focus on the 60km onshore cable route works means exploring a wide variety of opportunities, ranging from landscaping, composites, plant hire, waste management, fabricators and farmers to transport, accommodation and safety supplies.
You can now register your business interest with us. Please go to the contact us page and complete the form.
If you have any questions about the supply chain opportunities at this early stage, please contact us or visit us at the EEEGR Southern North Sea conference and Exhibition on the 16th and 17th May at the Norfolk Showground Arena.
