Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

This statement is made by Seawind Ocean Technology (Seawind) and is made pursuant to the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 and relevant international law, setting out the steps the company takes to prevent modern slavery across our business and supply chain

Our commitment

Seawind is committed to stamping out all forms of modern slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to upholding the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), driving these principles throughout our business and supply chain.

Seawind is an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) of floating offshore wind turbines and foundations. Seawind operates an ‘Airbus’ supply chain model for the detailed design, fabrication and assembly of our offshore wind structures.

Our supply chain is key to the successful delivery to our clients. Making sure that modern slavery and human trafficking is not part of our supply chain will assist in helping us to keep healthy and sustainable relationships.

Our values

Our success is based on a clear vision and set of values. They set the tone, help create our culture, give us one common set of principles and are fundamental to ensuring a sustainable business. These values extend through our business into our partners and supply chain.  Our values are:

Excellent: Delivering the highest quality in everything we do. Taking a right first-time approach and managing our team, partners and supply chain appropriately.

Innovative: Using our technical and business expertise to create and develop new solutions that will save time, cost and carbon.

Respectful: Managing our teams, working with our partners and impacting the community with the highest level of respect.

Collaborative: Working with government, developers, partners and communities to find the right solutions

At Seawind, doing the right thing guides how we work and live. Seawind strives to protect and enhance the human dignity of our personnel and everyone who has dealings with our Company.

We require our supply chain partners to adhere to these values, formalised in our supply chain contracts and expect them to enforce these same principles upon their suppliers.


Leadership for human rights issues including modern slavery and human trafficking comes from our Executive Leadership Team (ELT). Human Rights and Modern Slavery falls within our ESG programme which steers how we operate responsibly. In working with our partners, we will identify, prevent, detect and remedy and issues with slavery within our supply chain. Ultimately, we will close contracts and report suppliers to the relevant authorities if we find evidence of slavery. This process is overseen by the Seawind CEO.  

Looking ahead

Seawind is committed to continually developing our approach to human rights management and seeks to be recognised as a global leader in good practice. Therefore, we will review and evolve how we operate on an annual basis.
