We enjoyed attending Sunrise Winds ( a Ørsted Eversource Energy partnership) Supply Forum. We are working to ensure a just and equitable clean energy future for all! If you missed the event, local small and diverse businesses should visit their site to access an assortment of contract opportunities today. https://lnkd.in/gU4ne9Bb
We look forward to sharing all of our progress and making announcements about any contract awards that may manifest from our collective soon. We’d like to thank Michael McMahon (US Senior Supply Chain Development Manager | Ørsted) and Julia Bovey (Director of External Affairs for Offshore Wind | Eversource Energy)
