A Great Yarmouth firm has won a multi-million-pound contract to support the construction of three wind farms off the East Anglian coast.

Stowen Group, which was a subcontractor for Scottish Power’s East Anglia One project, will provide key services for three more offshore works: East Anglia One North, East Anglia Two, and East Anglia Three.

As well as providing industry specialists, the firm will also co-ordinate the training for new hires, plus materials and equipment needed to deliver the project.

Kieron Ford, business growth director at the Stowen Group, said: “This contract award provides a solid platform for Stowen to build on our ambitions to provide safe, secure and lasting careers across the east of England through training and development that supports people coming into the industry at all levels – from apprentices through to management.

“In practice for Stowen, it means growing our workforce locally through skills transfer, apprenticeships and upskilling; solidifying our reputation as a leading services provider in the offshore wind industry, while contributing to the UK’s net zero future. It is a momentous collaboration for us.”
