F4OR is a unique service to help the UK supply chain get ready to bid for work in the offshore renewable energy sector. The objective of the programme is to support the development of an increasingly competent, capable and competitive UK offshore renewable energy supply chain – maximising opportunity for the UK supply chain, both domestically and globally.
There are a wide range of tangible outcomes and benefits being created by the programme, both to individual companies and also to the industry as a whole. These include measurable benefits such as securing new contract wins or company growth, and softer benefits such as growing a company’s confidence in their abilities, or expanding their business network.
The wider industry benefits from a more competent and energised supply chain, and an awareness of the high potential companies that will form part of the growing supply chain of tomorrow.
Due to the level of interest we receive from companies wishing to participate in the F4OR programme, all interested parties are asked to complete an Expression of Interest (EOI) form.
