Cobh and Harbour Chamber Explore the Potential of Renewable Energy for Cork Harbour
On Thursday 13th May 2021, Cobh and Harbour Chamber will welcome members and guests to their fourth virtual breakfast series, in association with the Port of Cork. The theme of this week’s breakfast is ‘Cork Harbour – An International Energy Hub’ and boasts five speakers from local companies, such as Conor Mowlds Port of Cork, Pat O’Brennan Doyle Shipping Group, Mike King Irving Oil, Mick Horgan Green Rebel Marine and Brian Fitzgerald Simply Blue Energy Ltd.
Earlier in the year, Cork Harbour was pinpointed as a potential energy hub as it is perfectly positioned to support both transition and renewable energy activities and to the growing offshore wind sector. Cobh & Harbour Chamber are aiming to further explore this potential and discover the opportunities for the Harbour in greater detail at this week’s breakfast.
Cobh & Harbour Chamber President, Johanna Murphy said: ‘This sector has the potential to be really big for Cork Harbour and as a Chamber we want to support those companies involved and highlight to our members the benefits this sector could bring to the area.’
‘To date our breakfast series, in association with the Port of Cork have been very successful, however this one is proving to draw the largest numbers of attendees, which shows the local interest in this sector and the appetite to be part of this exciting time for Cork Harbour.’
The Port of Cork, who are main sponsors for the 2021 Breakfast Series are also speaking at this event.
Conor Mowlds, Chief Commercial Officer Port of Cork said: ‘We are proud to sponsor these events which have been very popular among Cobh & Harbour Chamber members and non-members. We have a longstanding relationship with the Chamber and together we have seen business sectors grow and flourish. We hope now we will see the same happen for the energy sector, as we position Cork Harbour as an International Energy Hub.’
