Sutton Bridge Port Setting Up Stage for DONG Energy

C.RO Ports Sutton Bridge has submitted an application to the local government of South Holland in Lincolnshire, asking for the approval to build a pontoon and stationing of portakabins and containers, which will be used by DONG Energy on offshore wind farms.

The pontoon will be used for mooring of specialised boats and loading and unloading of maintenance equipment and personnel.

The port is also seeking planning permission for land where portakabin office accommodation and associated storage containers will be stationed. A suite of portakabin offices will provide the base for the personnel involved in the operation, together with storage facilities in associated containers.

“There is a significant economic benefit to the area from the location of the Dong Energy operation at the Port, especially in the face of stiff competition from the Port of Grimsby for example,” it was said in the application.
