The participating regions have varied settings and they are characterised by individual strengths and weaknesses due to their diverse domestic wind markets. Whilst no individual region can demonstrate excellence in every aspect of the supply chain, the individual regions in the partnership have full capability throughout all identifiable supply chain activities. There is a clear benefit of establishing a real offshore wind POWER cluster with close relationships between the companies in the different regions, both for the economic regeneration of the involved regions, and for confirming the NSR as the global engine for the OWI.
The partnership wants to tackle the crucial challenges (skilled work force, supply chain enhancement, public acceptance and transnational complementarity) by cooperation beyond borderlines and sector barriers. The project seeks to develop cooperation between individual countries in order to take advantage of future growth in offshore wind and identifying future markets. This will strengthen the position of the NSR as a sector leader not just in Europe but globally, based on detailed analysis of the regional and transnational supply chain.
POWER cluster will support the NSR to maintain its leadership and offshore wind to play an even more significant role in meeting EU’s energy needs and targets in the coming decades.
