Oceantic Network Forms West Coast Supplier Council


Oceantic Network has organized the West Coast Supplier Council, focused on the development of the region’s offshore wind sector and supply chain. 

Using the knowledge and experience of network members in the West Coast supply chain, the council will focus on supply chain perspectives and expertise, and their inclusion in state and federal planning processes covering the West Coast. 

“The West Coast is at a critical stage in its offshore wind development, and we look forward to encouraging its sustainable and intentional growth,” says John Begala, vice president of federal and state policy at Oceantic Network. 

“We are fortunate to have assembled a strong collection of companies with the experience and capabilities to get projects delivered on time and on budget. These are the businesses that will serve as the backbone of a robust offshore wind supply chain, with potential to employ countless workers at a competitive wage.” 

The West Coast Supplier Council is made up of companies that act as OEMs, EPC firms and Tier 1 suppliers. Additionally, the companies serving as founding members of the council have all delivered components to at least one full-scale offshore wind project operating globally or under construction in the U.S. 

The council will work with all major stakeholders on West Coast sector development, including project developers, labor unions, policymakers, port authorities and environmental advocates. 

Founding members of the West Coast Supplier Council include Aker Solutions, Burns & McDonnell, Crowley Wind Services, Foss Offshore Wind and Hellenic Cables.
