Companies from across Hull and the East Riding attended an event last week to find out more about employment and supply chain opportunities at Energy Works, a new, advanced waste-to-energy facility in east Hull.
M+W Group, the main Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for the delivery of Energy Works, held the networking event at its base in Dalton Street for almost 100 attendees.
Presentations were given on employment and subcontract work from Tier 1 contractors, including Fabricom, Field Systems Designs Ltd, North Sea Ventilation, Siemens Turbine and Sutco UK Ltd. Representatives of M+W and Spencer Group, the Hull-based engineering and construction business leading the civil engineering works for Energy Works, also gave talks.
In addition, Stoneferry Primary School, the Considerate Constructors Scheme and local charity the Smile Foundation were in attendance, to discuss the importance of corporate social responsibility and community engagement with potential supply chain contractors.
Dawn Hall, Project Manager for the Green Port Growth Programme’s business support team, commented:
“The event was a success and it was great to hear how local businesses are winning tenders and gaining work from this project. Companies are interested to learn more about Energy Works and how they can get involved, and this event provided information and contacts to allow them to take the next step.”
