Fifteen UK businesses have secured a share of £2 million Innovation Grant funding from the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP). In addition, OWGP is launching a separate £2 million Development Grant, which provides up to £500k for UK applicants that can demonstrate significant growth potential in the offshore wind sector.

OWGP is a long-term business transformation programme established in 2019 to grow the UK’s offshore wind supply chain. The 15 projects awarded Innovation Grant funding from OWGP are listed below:
