SPR and Shell ScotWind Supply Chain commitment

SPR & Shell together have extensive experience of the energy industry.

Merging our knowledge and capabilities in offshore activities creates a significant opportunity to develop the Scottish supply chain and a Scottish workforce. Shell has developed and operated assets in the North Sea for over 50 years and Shell’s ambition remains to provide cleaner, integrated energy solutions and offerings to its customers. Today, Shell is a key employer in Scotland with approximately 1,350 employees based there as of January 2021. In 2018, Shell’s activity in Scotland created 11,700 full-time equivalent jobs and generated £775 million gross value added to the Scottish economy.

Shell has also supported more than 3,000 jobs in the Scottish services sector through supply chain activity. SPR, part of the UK’s first 100% green vertically integrated energy company ScottishPower, is a subsidiary of the global energy firm Iberdrola. Iberdrola has a global ambition to meet the target of 60 GW installed capacity by the end of 2025. With a strong presence of onshore and offshore wind across the UK and Scotland, SPR has positioned itself as a major player in renewable energy in the UK.

With over 3 GW of renewable energy generation across the UK, including the recently completed East Anglia ONE (EA1) which supported approximately 3,500 jobs at the peak of construction, SPR has created a pathway of development in the East Anglia region with the pipeline of three further projects, known as the East Anglia Hub. SPR&Shell support the goals of the Paris Agreement and Scotland and the UK’s ambitious targets of net zero emissions by 2045 and 2050 respectively. SPR was directly involved in the creation of the Offshore Wind Sector Deal which outlines the ambitions to work in partnership with government to further develop the five pillars of the deal: Business Environment, Infrastructure, Ideas, People, and Places.

In addition, SPR was co-author of the UK Offshore Wind Industry Review, led by Martin Whitmarsh, offering UK government an independent perspective on the industry and making recommendations for the sector. We are active members of Scottish Offshore Wind Energy Council (SOWEC) and Offshore Wind Growth Partnership (OWGP) Reference Groups which provides understanding of the opportunities and challenges for the supply chain and work with wider industry to resolve these.
