Developing Scotland's Supply Chain
Mainstream and Siemens announced the revival of its supply chain led partnership to bid in the ScotWind offshore leasing round. The partnership with world-leading technology suppliers Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Siemens Energy will work with Mainstream and Siemens Financial Services from the outset as Tier One suppliers.
Combined, the group will create a dedicated multimillion pound fund to support its joint commitment of developing a competitive local supply chain to underpin the project’s development. The consortium has already achieved great success previously in developing a sustainable offshore wind supply chain in Hull and Humber, following its development of the Hornsea zone.
Experienced Offshore Developer
Mainstream is the most successful independent developer of offshore wind at scale globally. It has developed and consented Hornsea One and developed Hornsea Two totalling 2.6 GW in England and consented the Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind project in Scotland, 450 MW. These projects represent approximately 20% of the UK’s offshore wind capacity either in operation or under construction.
