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've subsequently held another event to introduce local suppliers to our Tier 1 contractors for the cable route and onshore substation, and will be holding further events for other work packages.
We have 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.
