Offshore Energy Network to Create Jobs

Renewable energy group Norstec has been back by the government with the aim of creating thousands of jobs in the North East, reports the Northern Echo.

Norstec is a group of several companies in the North East, including the Deep Ocean Group and JDR Cables. The companies met to discuss how to make the best use of the potential of the sector which is expected to create around 1,000 jobs in the area. This is a major boost to offshore wind power as it shows a concerted effort by the government to back the sector.

The Prime Minister has stated that “close collaboration between industry and government will be critical to making this happen.” The Climate Change Secretary then added “The offshore wind industry represents a massive growth opportunity for the UK and our neighbours around the northern seas, bringing jobs and reenergising once thriving industrial heartlands on the east coast and beyond.”
