NES Fircroft is proud to be a supplier to the bp and EnBW joint venture offshore wind projects in the UK. With the wind farms planning a total production capacity of 5.9GW, our recruitment scope covers contract staffing support for four years, with the possibility of extension for a further five. NES will support the developments through the project life cycle, with an initial expectation of offshore construction commencing in 2027.

The joint venture has the potential to deliver a bright future for the United Kingdom’s offshore wind industry. The Morgan and Mona projects will be based in the Irish Sea, with the partnership also awarded the 2.9GW Morven development site in the North Sea through the ScotWind offshore wind tender.

Together the offshore wind developments aim to support the UK Government’s 50GW target for offshore wind power generation by 2030.

Neil Mellin, Regional Business Development Director - Renewables, NES Fircroft stated:

“We are proud to support this major joint venture in the offshore wind space and eager to deliver exceptional talent to the project portfolio. We are delighted to be chosen for such an important piece of work which helps to secure Britain’s renewable energy production, and our strong track record in reaching skilled technical candidates on a global scale will play its part in our partnership’s success.”
