Delegation of Humber Offshore Wind Companies to Visit Denmark
A delegation of Humber companies working in the offshore wind supply chain is to visit Denmark next week on a fact-finding, networking trade mission.
Organised by Team Humber Marine Alliance (THMA) and Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), nearly 20 businesses and organisations will tour the main production facilities of Siemens Wind Power in Brande.
Mark O’Reilly, director and chairman of THMA, said: “There is a really good mix of Humber companies coming with us, ranging from logistics to offshore wind support vessels to survival clothing.
“We will hear from Siemens about its Brande offshore wind facilities and how its supply chains work, and it is also a great opportunity to network with other companies within the Danish and Norwegian offshore wind industry.
“This increasingly strong relationship between Danish, German, Norwegian and British companies is something that we have been helping to develop for the last few years.”
Delegates will also visit ‘Energy Metropolis’ Esbjerg, including its offshore wind harbour facilities, and hear from Blue Water Shipping on how its Blue Water Danbrit joint venture has benefited from EEN support.
The three-day visit is in conjunction with overseas partners including Windcluster Norway and Targeting Innovation, as part of the North Sea Offshore Wind conference 2013.
Companies and organisations going to Denmark from September 3-5 include Blue Water Danbrit, Carlbom Shipping, Collett Marine, Dalby Offshore, DFDS Seaways, Green Marine Solutions, Humber LEP, Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce, Mechan, Mullion Survival Technology, the University of Hull, Wind Power Performance and Wind Power Support.
