We are proud to announce that CryoGen Industrial Services has been chosen to take part in the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership’s (OWGP) Wind Expert Support Toolkit (WEST) Pilot Programme, which is designed to help businesses looking to capitalise on the huge opportunities offered by the global offshore wind sector.

According to OWGP, WEST will support the growth of new and existing offshore wind supply chain companies by providing needs-focused expert business support, market intelligence, and insight into the sector for both existing and cross-sector supply chain companies. To meet the needs of the sector and build a strong UK supply chain that can meet the growth ambitions set out in the UK Offshore Wind Sector Deal, there must be a cross-transfer of knowledge, skills and technologies from other sectors. The OWGP is a key part of the Offshore Wind Sector Deal between industry and the UK Government and is funded by the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC).

Steve Mesure, Managing Director at CryoGen, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be one of the companies chosen to take part in this exciting scheme, which will provide a platform for mutual support and sharing best practice. We are committed to developing our own range of specialist services across this developing sector – and this pioneering project will ensure various organisations are in the best possible position to help accelerate the UK’s growth in offshore wind. We look forward to collaborating closely with the OWGP and other participating businesses in 2021 and beyond.
