Senior Sourcing Manager, Offshore Construction & Foundations Ørsted
As the U.S. offshore wind industry continues to grow, the many smaller components in towers, foundations, substations and even the turbine will be fabricated locally. In this session, panelists will breakdown how Tier 1 component suppliers will rely on local fabricators to supply smaller steel parts. The discussion also will review the type of qualifications and training required for these suppliers. This workshop will build on the Business Network’s Foundation to Blade Training (F2B), a training course launching fall of 2020, developed to help companies understand how they can integrate into the U.S. offshore wind supply.
