This Sector Deal builds on the UK’s global leadership position in offshore wind and seeks to maximise the advantages for UK industry from the global shift to clean growth, consistent with the Clean Growth Grand Challenge.

It will do this by:
1. Providing forward visibility of future Contracts for Difference rounds with support of up to £557m, with the next allocation round planned to open by May 2019, with subsequent auctions around two years thereafter.
2. The sector committing to increase UK content to 60 per cent by 2030, including increases in the capital expenditure phase.
3. Increasing the representation of women in the offshore wind workforce to at least a third by 2030.
4. Setting an ambition of increasing exports fivefold to £2.6bn by 2030.
5. The sector will invest up to £250m in building a stronger UK supply chain, establishing the Offshore
Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP) to support productivity and increase competitiveness.

With the largest installed offshore wind capacity in the world and the prices consumers pay for the
energy the sector generates falling significantly (between the 2015 and 2017 Contracts for Difference auctions, support costs fell 50 per cent), a trend that is expected to continue.  Over the next decade, there will be a huge expansion of offshore wind around the world with some estimates envisaging a 17 per cent annual growth from 22GW to 154GW in total installed capacity by 2030.

In the UK, this could see offshore wind contributing up to 30GW of generating capacity.  The domestic opportunities are significant too. Building up to 30GW of offshore wind by 2030 could account for over £40bn of infrastructure spending in the next decade2

nacelle-4-640x427-1.jpg

CATCH was really pleased to take delivery of a Nacelle from Siemens Gamesa at the end of October.  Transporting the 80 ton piece of equipment from Siemens in Hull to CATCH was a huge logistical task that was overseen throughout by Iain Ritchie from Ritchie Services.
The nacelle provides a whole new dimension in developing the offshore wind training offer for the region and fits in with the CATCH model of using real life equipment and plant to support skills and competency development.
We would like to thank the Siemens Gamesa Training Centre in Hull for the very kind donation.  The plan now is to protect the equipment from the elements and to work with our partners North Lindsey College to turn it into a first class training aid for mechanical and electrical training.
David Talbot, CEO of CATCH said ‘CATCH is very grateful to Siemens Gamesa for the donation of this great training aid.  We can see a wide variety of uses for the nacelle and will be working with our partner, North Lindsey College, and other stakeholders to develop the equipment to its true potential.  CATCH is a non-profit skills development organisation that is led by industry and relies on donations such as this nacelle to ensure that we can continue to provide relevant, up-to-date, contextualised training that is demanded by industry.’
