Supply Chain & Benefits

SMart Wind and DONG Energy want to engage with local suppliers to discuss opportunities for local based supply for the realisation of Hornsea Project One.


Transparency is very important for us and in the way we engage with any supplier. Therefore we identify and prequalify suppliers through two different supplier databases*:


  • UVDB: All Local categories in the United Kingdom

  • Sellihca: All Global categories, as well as locals in Scandinavia


You can find out all about DONG Energy's procurement process by visiting our Procurement pages.


GROW: Offshore Wind offers funding of up to £500,000 to help support investment or innovation projects. Additional support is available for supplier development across all tiers. Find out more:

The aim will be to inform local businesses of the potential opportunities that could arise from the construction and operation of Hornsea Project One.
