More than 700 people attended the 2019 Offshore Wind North East event in Newcastle, making it NOF and Energi Coast’s biggest and most successful conference and exhibition. As a Strategic Event Partner, Sofia had a prominent stand and was able to network with representatives from a wide range of supply chain businesses. Sofia's Project Director, David Few gave a presentation on the day and was a keynote speaker at the gala dinner the preceding evening.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that 5GW of the 2019 Contracts for Difference auction round was awarded to projects located off the North East, the event was a showcase for North East-based suppliers and the heritage, skills and depth of experience in the region. For suppliers, it was their opportunity to learn more about the significant number of upcoming opportunities.
The event was part of the wider annual Offshore Wind Week series of events and included opportunities for industry VIPs to tour the facilities of supply chain companies across the region.
