UK: Grimsby to Celebrate Another Step towards Offshore Wind

UK: Grimsby to Celebrate Another Step towards Offshore Wind

The lock gate extension at the entrance to Port of Grimsby East is now completed, making the former fish docks ready to meet the demands of the offshore wind energy industry, This is Grimsby news site informs.

Essential improvements of the infrastructure raise the port’s capacity to accommodate large vessels, which will carry out O&M work on the North Sea wind turbines. In addition, they will allow more crafts of smaller size to enter and leave the dock.

E.ON’s commitment to Grimsby will also be celebrated tomorrow, since the company will build its O&M base there to work on its Humber Gateway offshore wind farm.

“The site has been disused for a number of years and it is good to see it redeveloped. The facility, which will support the construction, operation and maintenance of the Humber Gateway wind farm, is currently under construction and is due to be complete this summer. Up to 50 jobs will also be created by the site,” the news site quotes Dave Moseley, E.ON’s project manager, as saying.

The town has more reasons to toast to offshore wind, as DONG Energy’s plans have been recently revealed, which involve work on its Westermost Rough offshore wind farm from the Port of Grimsby.

Grimsby Fish Dock Enterprises, the company behind Port of Grimsby East, made these improvements happen through partnering up with the local authority and other stakeholders. North East Lincolnshire Council provided GBP 500,000 through its Change programme to finance the works.

Also, the Council approved a Local Development Order (LDO) for a 3.6 hectare part of the Enterprise Zone on Grimsby Docks last month. This move aims at attracting companies involved in renewable energy development by simplifying the planning process to enable easier acquirement of planning permissions for local businesses.
