We’re really keen to use as much local content as possible while constructing, operating and maintaining Rampion.
In order to increase the input of local suppliers, we formed a Supply Chain Steering Group with local authority partners in 2011 and our work together included a Meet the Buyer event where almost 300 companies attended to find out more. We have also established a dedicated website www.sussexwindenergy.org.uk to seek to maximise opportunities for local suppliers. If you would like further information, please visit the SWE website using the link above.
We've started our recruitment campaign locally, with an event in New Haven to promote opportunities for offshore technicians on the project. We've also got an opportunity for a Lead Operations Engineer, which is open for application. You can view the details for this role at: http://karriere.eon.beesite.de/html/jobad13245.html
