WORKING TOGETHER FOR INVESTMENT FEATURE SPONSOR


SCORE FUNDING


Chris Anderson, Managing Director of 4C Offshore remarks, “The grant application process was really straight forward and very swift, which is exactly what we were looking for. Currently we attract approximately 500,000 visitors a year to our site, but this new development to our offering provides an opportunity to expand our service into the emerging offshore tidal industry, which is now moving to commercialisation.”


RECENT SCORE GRANT RECIPIENTS INCLUDE… • IV Offshore – the Ipswich-based company has secured a £30k SCORE grant to assist in the development of a database called ‘IV Live’, which allows offshore companies, HR departments 24/7 access to search and find contract staff, available for immediate deployment. This new database speeds up the process dramatically by saving HR teams having to call several recruitment agencies to find the type of applicant they are seeking.


James Kennedy, Associate Director of IV Energy, says: “Securing the SCORE grant allowed us to commit more funds to this project ourselves. Delivering a high quality and efficient service to our clients is of the utmost importance to us and this new database will vastly improve the way our clients can search for particular candidates across the whole market.


“The grant application process was made very simple by the team and their guidance was very much appreciated in allowing us to secure this funding.”


• 4C Offshore – leading online technical experts and insights company 4C Offshore, based at OrbisEnergy in Lowestoft, has also received SCORE grant funding to take forward its plans to increase the accessibility of its web portal, which contains over 10,000 pages of data and 130,000 fields of information relating to the offshore wind sector, making it the ‘go to’ place for those in the industry.


The company’s website provides real- time data on offshore wind projects, tidal projects, ports, vessels, equipment, turbines, wind farm service vessels, offshore sub-stations and more. Users are also able to access data relating to seabed depths, cable route corridors, cable routes and grid connection points.


• Wellton Energy – located at Norfolk’s Hethel Engineering Centre. Wellton Energy identified an opportunity in the market to provide on-the-ground assistance to companies seeking to drive forward their expansion or relocation to the East of England. Following extensive research into the potential of the idea, Wellton Energy launched its innovative inward investment service earlier this year.


Jason Brighton, Director of Wellton Energy comments: “When companies look to relocate or expand, their main aim is to work with a local team that not only understands the needs of their specific industry, but can work with them to overcome the business legalities of setting up a UK operation.


“The grant has also helped give us the commercial ‘push’ to create marketing materials to promote this service and plans are now in place to exhibit at the Manchester EIC Connect Show in November.”
