Throughout this year Sofia and its Tier 1 suppliers, with the support of NOF / Energi Coast as supply chain partners, will initiate a range of events and activities to keep suppliers up-to-date with the project and to highlight opportunities, particularly in the North East.
Earlier this year we sent a survey to find out how developers can better engage with the supply chain, and received 120 valuable responses. At the first dedicated Sofia event this month, the results of that survey will be presented along with how the feedback will be incorporated into the project’s supply chain activity.
The first webinar will take place on Tueday 20th April and provide a high level introduction to the project. At this webinar, attendees will find out about Sofia’s construction programme, learn about the project’s key component contractors and hear from new Project Director, Matthew Swanwick.
There will also be a Q&A session for those keen to ask specific questions of the Sofia team plus initial details about the project’s planned meet-the-buyer events featuring Tier 1 & 2 suppliers in May/June.
