Lerwick Port Authority’s developing relationship with the offshore wind energy sector will be expanded this week with participation on a Shetland stand at the Floating Offshore Wind (FOW23) exhibition in Aberdeen.
The Authority will feature on stand A57 on Wednesday 4 & Thursday 5 October at P&J Live, alongside Shetland supply chain partners and NE1 developers.
The event follows the Authority’s recent signing of a collaboration agreement with Irish energy company ESB to work on port solutions to support development, operation and maintenance of a major floating windfarm east of Shetland.
Captain Calum Grains, Port Authority Chief Executive, said: “Attending exhibitions like last month’s Offshore Europe and now FOW are important so we can be part of the discussions in the evolving renewables sector which brings significant opportunities for Lerwick to play a supporting role.
“We look forward to welcoming delegates to the stand to hear about Lerwick and Shetland’s potential.”
The involvement of Lerwick Harbour in supporting renewables projects is the focus of the latest activity Bulletin from the Port Authority. Find out more about how the partnerships within the supply chain are supporting the energy transition.
