Our aim is to have the least impact and provide the most benefit to the communities in which we operate. The construction phase is one way we can create economic benefits through inward investment, and many local companies who may not have worked on a wind project before would be suited to get involved in their local wind farm supply chain.
Our approach aims to maximise the amount retained locally by facilitating "Meet the Buyer" events, maintaining a suppliers database and connecting with regional business representatives.
Before we started construction on our Greener Grid Park in Keith, we facilitated opportunities for local suppliers to get involved in conjunction with the Chamber of Commerce.
We would like to hear from any businesses in the region of our projects who think they may be a suitable supplier.
A range of suppliers and services are needed to build a project:
- Construction companies
- Drainage contractors
- Material suppliers (concrete, stone etc)
- Building materials
- Building merchants
- Fuel providers
- Plant hire
- Temporary site office hire
- Waste management
- Car hire and taxis
- Fencing contractors
