How often does your business get a chance to be part of a new and exciting emerging industry? What does it take to construct and install the first freshwater wind project in North America, 8 miles off Cleveland’s shore?
It takes a lot! A lot of equipment, materials, services, and labor, much of which will be sourced locally, right here in Northeast Ohio. From pre-construction services to setting up a complete staging area with office trailers, temporary assembly units, furnishings, utilities, and security, to a long list of materials, rental equipment, material handling equipment, and all the trades for the construction and installation phase. And let’s not forget the hospitality services needed for the installation crews, cleaning services, sanitary services, crew meals, and crew transport.
WHAT: LEEDCo, Fred. Olsen Renewables USA, GLWN, and Emerald Cities Cleveland are working together to identify regional businesses that are capable and interested in being part of this extraordinary project. Join us for our Supply Chain Open House event.
