Opportunities for skills transition into offshore wind: are they real and how can they be realised?

The skills transition from declining sectors into offshore wind is much discussed, but rarely does the conversation get under the skin of the real world challenges at hand. In her new blog, Quaybridge Strategy Manager, Zoe Barnes identifies some of the key barriers which need to be lowered if we are to make a success of this transition in Scotland.

Season's Greetings

As is our tradition at Christmas, we have made a donation to charity instead of sending cards. This year, we have chosen The Cyrenians, a charity tackling the causes and consequences of homelessness. We are already linked with this charity through our educational initiative, Winds of Change – a programme supporting students to build a wind turbine to provide low-cost green power for The Cyrenians in Edinburgh. We’re very pleased to be able to give them an extra boost this year with our Christmas donation.

OSS (Offshore Survival Systems)

Few businesses fit the profile of our Slipstream Programme better than OSS. OSS designs and builds safety net systems that save lives at sea using patent protected unmanned semi-autonomous vessels. It’s a pleasure working with OSS to develop an innovative idea into compelling business case. (Image: An artist's impression of the OSS unmanned semi-autonomous vessel)
