Flying the flag for Fife at All-Energy 2018
All-Energy 2018 offered Fife the opportunity to showcase its strengths as a place to invest as well as its expertise in technology, engineering and innovation in the renewables and low carbon sector.
This year, Invest in Fife and ORE Catapult shared stand space at the two-day event, which took place at the SECC in Glasgow. Invest in Fife and ORE Catapult were located within the Offshore Innovation Zone, which attracted significant levels of interest as well as a visit from the Rt Hon Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Energy and Clean Growth.
Limpet Technology, which has recently located its R&D and engineering operations to the Energy Park Fife, exhibited some of its equipment. Its products enable safer and faster access to tall structures, significantly lowering the cost of operations and maintenance work; a fantastic demonstration to have within the Offshore Innovation Zone.
Robin Presswood, Head of Economy, Planning and Employability Services, Fife Council, said:
“All-Energy offered an excellent opportunity to showcase Fife as the best place to live, work and do business, by highlighting our specific strengths and capabilities in the renewable technologies sector.
“Fife is a key hub for the energy and renewable sector. We have a robust skills and knowledge base, and the region is already home to a wide range of pioneering projects.”
