Sustainable job creation in the Celtic Sea region

Head shot of Olaf Marshal Whitley being interviewed for BBC Spotlight

As part of Maritime UK’s efforts to promote careers in the offshore renewables industry, Olaf from Celtic Sea Power visited Penzance Dry Dock to meet some of the apprentices in their yard and speak to BBC News about the potential for high-wage, sustainable job creation in the region. With floating offshore wind set to make up a significant part of the future energy mix, there will be many opportunities to be a part of an exciting new chapter in the story of British industry. Both the managers and the apprentices themselves are switched on to the value of FLOW to their business and are keen to get stuck into the Crown Estate target of 4GW in the Celtic Sea by 2035.

Olaf is part of the team delivering the Cornwall Floating Offshore Wind Accelerator, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
