A new offshore wind organisation, called OSW Supply Chain, has been launched to serve as an educational resource for New York state businesses and communities looking to get involved in the burgeoning US offshore wind industry.
OSW Supply Chain, a DBA of the Composite Prototyping Center, provides information, tools, and points of connection for manufacturers, service providers, small businesses, entrepreneurs, and others looking to transition into offshore wind business opportunities in New York. Among the resources available on the OSW Supply Chain website is a NYSERDA-based geo-map offering a straightforward view of offshore wind training and manufacturing organisations, port operations, apprenticeship programs, labour organisations, consulting services, and offshore construction services. OSW Supply Chain also plays an advocacy role, serving as a connector to a statewide network of industry, government, and educational institutions that can assist new entrants in navigating offshore wind project requirements and opportunities. OSW Supply Chain partners include EnBW North America, Eversource and Ørsted, along with the Long Island Federation of Labor and the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Center at Farmingdale College.
