Industry Supplier Expos Announced for Empire Wind and Beacon Wind Projects

06 Dec 2022

Equinor and bp, will kick-off a three-part Industry Supplier roadshow with an inaugural event in the Capitol Region at Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC), in Troy New York, on December 13, beginning with registration at 8:00 AM. The roadshow is designed to help local and regional manufacturers participate in New York’s new offshore wind industry and provide them with the opportunity to directly connect them with Equinor and its key suppliers.

Through the Industry Supplier Expos, Equinor is facilitating the growth and sustainability of a New York-focused supply chain to supply and service the offshore wind industry for decades to come. The series offers a springboard for New York businesses to find out more about working in the offshore wind industry and prepare for future industry opportunities. The second and third supplier events will occur in New York City and Long Island, respectively.

“The Supply Chain Expo is a great opportunity for New York businesses to learn how to get involved in this exciting industry. Offshore wind is still new to the United States, and Equinor is committed to helping create a new, bourgeoning supply chain. The Supplier Expos are designed to help us connect with a variety of manufacturers, especially those in adjacent sectors like aerospace, maritime, and heavy industries that are well-positioned to join the offshore wind ecosystem,” said Molly Morris, President of Equinor Wind US.

Through the supplier expos, Equinor also seeks to foster involvement in the supply chain from Minority- and women-owned businesses and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses. Key suppliers will include Nexans, Vestas, Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, Marmen and Welcon, Edison Chouest, and more.

Companies are encouraged to register for the first Supplier Expo at HVCC in Troy on December 13 here. Pre-registered attendees may attend short, one to one ‘matchmaker’ sessions to introduce and share their capabilities with project representatives.

Future supplier expos will take place in New York City at the CUNY Graduate Center on February 7th and on Long Island at Farmingdale State College on March 10th.
