Navitus Bay announces preferred wind turbine supplier
Navitus Bay Development Ltd. has announced MHI Vestas as their preferred wind turbine supplier. MHI Vestas is a joint venture between Vestas and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and they have an operation based on the Isle of Wight at the Vestas Technology Centre. For Navitus Bay, the wind turbine manufacturer is responsible for a significant part of the overall project in that they supply the turbines, install them then maintain them for 25 years.
For SOREC members this presents a significant opportunity with a wide range of suppliers required for the contract – from work boats to consultant engineers. All of Navitus Bay’s tier 1 suppliers are seriously looking at using the CompeteFor procurement portal – so make sure you are registered on there if you haven’t already. As with all large projects, Navitus Bay are looking for suppliers to comply with a range of standards and specifications – see the link to the presentation below.
