Business Talks June 2022

Business Talk – Dogger Bank Wind Farm Project

Dogger Bank Wind Farm will place South Tyneside and the North East at the centre of the UK’s offshore renewables industry.

As the development of the state-of-the-art Operations & Maintenance (O&M) base being constructed at the Port of Tyne continues at pace, Tom Nightingale, North East Stakeholder Manager at Equinor provided an update on what is one of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects.

A number of guests joined Tom and host Ian Farrar to give real examples of the direct impact that the project is having in South Tyneside in terms of the local supply chain, community engagement projects and interaction with local schools and colleges.

Thanks to Alex Whelan, Careers Co-ordinator from South Tyneside Council, Graeme Crowe from local supplier Metec, and Patrick William-Powlett from South Shields Cricket club for joining the Business Talk.

This event took place as part of South Tyneside Business Week 2022. It was live streamed from One Trinity Green on Friday 17 June 2022.
