What is MESCG?

The Marine Energy Supply Chain Gateway (MESCG) is a database of suppliers supporting the UK’s marine energy industry.

It brings together data from six partners to provide a comprehensive guide to the marine energy supply chain in the UK.

The MESCG is owned and managed by ORE Catapult, the UK’s flagship technology innovation and research centre for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.

Introducing the supply chain

The UK marine energy supply chain is a network of companies and organisations developing, producing and manufacturing products for the marine energy sector, from Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to innovative small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The marine energy sector could be worth more than £4 billion cumulatively to UK GDP by 2050*, so a significant and long term supply chain base is vital as the sector moves towards commercialisation.
