Developing a sustainable supply chain at Scottish Renewables Offshore Wind Conference.

James Fisher Marine Services (JFMS) is a proud sponsor of the Scottish Renewables Offshore Wind Conference 2018 in Glasgow (29 – 30 January).

Guest speakers will include John Best, special projects consultant at JFMS and recently appointed as chair of the OWIG - Scottish Offshore Wind Supply Chain Forum (SOWSCF).

He will be speaking as part of a session discussing the forward strides being taken to optimise the resilience and competitiveness of the supply chain and how Scotland’s businesses can ensure they are at the forefront of services to the growing offshore renewables sector.

John Best said:

“Helping to develop the OWIG - SOWSCF is a really exciting project which will help to bring focus and increased opportunity to the highly-skilled and capable offshore wind supply chain in Scotland.

“An excellent cross section of delegates, drawn from developers, through OEM’s to the supporting businesses will be attending a workshop on the day before the conference. Also attending with the supply chain, will be membership organisations, academia and public sector representatives. The objective of the workshop is to discuss the potential of developing a supply chain code of practice to identify ways to raise the public profile and expertise of this vital and growing sector through one common voice."

The wider conference hopes to provide answers as to how Scotland’s supply chain will pursue growth opportunities with the industry. While changes in Scottish and UK Government policy, wind farms of the future, innovations cutting cost and project updates will also be discussed.
