Offshore Wind Sector Ripe for Growth for A&P

A&P Group yesterday stated the offshore wind sector is “ripe for growth”, as the company reported a steady 2016 and said it is on track to achieve its projected turnover of GBP 90 million for this financial year.

Andy Shaw, Group Managing Director for A&P Group said: “This sector is certainly ripe with opportunity and these projects make excellent use of our in-house knowledge, expertise and resource. It is A&P Group’s breadth of capability that underpins our continued and steady performance and we feel very encouraged as we look toward 2017.”

At the beginning of this year, A&P saw Maersk Connector docking at its Tyne yard in the North East of England as it arrived to be fitted with a split capacity carousel. In April, MPI Adventure arrived at A&P Group’s Hebburn yard for maintenance and repair, with MPI Discovery docking at the same yard the following month to undergo specialist repair.

In May, A&P Tyne was contracted to fabricate and install the sea fastening on A2SEA’s Sea Challenger, which was contracted to work on the 402MW Dudgeon offshore wind farm.

A&P Group operates seven dry docks across three strategic locations in the UK and has a business in Australia that provides ship repair services and support to the Royal Australian Navy.
