RIDG has joined RenewableUK as a company member to support its ongoing engagement with Westminster around the Sector Deal.

Mike Hay, Commercial Director at RIDG, commented: “As a British pure-play offshore wind project development company, RIDG brings a wealth of project and industrial development experience to the table without the constraints of international ownership. We’re therefore focussed specifically on bringing the global opportunity of offshore wind to the UK and maximising local value from our projects.

Indeed, for every project we deliver it is our mission to increase the capability and competitiveness of the local supply chain. We do this because we believe strongly that increased supply chain capability and competition will drive cost reductions further, creating more opportunity for offshore wind, and the companies that supply it, around the world.”

RenewableUK’s Executive Director, Emma Pinchbeck, said: “It’s great to have RIDG on board, as companies like this are helping to ensure that we maximise the supply chain opportunities for the hundreds of UK companies involved in our world-leading offshore wind sector.  This is a crucial time for the industry, as we’re working closely with Government on a transformative offshore wind Sector Deal which has the potential to deliver £48 billion investment in UK infrastructure, supporting 27,000 skilled jobs by 2030.”
