GreenSpur’s Goal with the OWSD

GreenSpur is currently working with a network of likeminded UK supply chain partners to develop high-value manufacturing and assembly processes.
We believe we can establish a UK Manufacturing Centre of Excellence around our innovative generator in the next 3 to 5 years with the support from the deal.

If you want to partner with us, get in touch here.

“By 2030 a 1/3 of our electricity will come from offshore wind, generating thousands of high quality jobs across the UK, a strong UK supply chain and a fivefold increase in exports.”
