ScottishPower Renewables - East Anglia Hub: Webinar Replay available

Forth and Tay Offshore invites its members and supply chain companies to listen again to the virtual East Anglia Hub wind farm project update with ScottishPower Renewables.

ScottishPower Renewables is proposing to construct its future offshore windfarms, East Anglia THREE, East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North, as a new ‘East Anglia Hub’.

In the event that full consents are achieved in 2021, for East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North, the EA Hub concept will increase efficiencies and could deliver multiple and wide-reaching benefits such as reduced construction timescales, sustained contracting opportunities for the supply chain and a reduction in the cost of renewable energy.

The East Anglia Hub would comprise between up to 263 next generation turbines in the southern North Sea generating up to 3.1GW. The offshore and onshore layout of the East Anglia THREE, East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North projects would remain as originally planned.

Free Business Mentoring for Scottish Companies

Businesses are being invited to apply for the second round of FREE mentoring from Scottish Business Cares.

Each participant will get a total of seven hours of mentoring from a business leader with knowledge and experience relevant to their specific situation. Mentors are drawn from a variety of industries including entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.

The mentoring programme will initially take on 50 SMEs who have previously participated in SBRC’s webinars and grow based on demand and funding availability.

All mentors have previous economic crisis experience gained during the 2008 financial crash, as well as a strong track record of business growth and success.

They have also agreed to use their extensive networks to enable introductions that will benefit mentees.
