Local businesses encouraged to attend supply chain event

Local businesses are encouraged to attend a supply chain event being held by Fred. Olsen Renewables on Wednesday 24th of May at Fort Augustus Village Hall. The drop-in event will showcase the opportunities available locally during the construction and operation of the proposed Culachy Wind Farm.

The application for the proposed Culachy Wind Farm, located south of Fort Augustus, is set to be submitted in the summer. With the development on the horizon, Fred. Olsen Renewables would like to develop its links with businesses in the area to ensure that the plans can make the most of the skills and services on offer locally.

The drop-in event will take place:

12pm – 6pm

Fort Augustus Village Hall

Wednesday 24th May

The drop-in session is intended to act as an initial introduction to the Fred. Olsen Renewables team and to help prepare the supply chain to engage in forthcoming opportunities.

Rachel Baird, Project Manager at Fred. Olsen Renewables, commented:

“Fred. Olsen Renewables has been operating in Scotland since the mid-1990s and since then we have signed over £700m worth of contracts with local businesses. We hope that this event helps to build links with the local supply chain and provide the opportunity for those that have services to offer to pop in, meet the team and learn about the opportunities available.

“We look forward to meeting many local businesses and exploring how we can work together at Culachy Wind Farm.”
