Developers building an offshore wind farm which will bring energy ashore in East Lothian are urging local suppliers and workers to get involved, as they bid to benefit the area and lower the project’s carbon footprint. Inch Cape Offshore Limited (ICOL) is looking for local businesses who can help it build the onshore substation it plans to bring energy from its wind farm onto land at Cockenzie. Firms are being invited to join a virtual supply chain, with Inch Cape saying ensuring local expertise is used will allow it to reduce costs, construction times and its carbon footprint. The company is hosting a virtual Cluster Builder event next week where firms will be able to learn how they can get involved in the massive wind farm project.
