The Port of Tyne, one of only two deep-sea ports in North East England, is making further progress to prepare its site for offshore wind manufacturers. As round four of the tender process by the Crown Estate, which is responsible for awarding seabed rights for offshore renewable energy projects, nears completion the Port of Tyne is investing substantially in the third phase of clearance and remediation of Tyne Dock Enterprise Park. The site offers easy access to deep-sea berths and associated port services. Situated closer than any other port to seven of the world’s biggest offshore wind farms the Port of Tyne is perfectly placed to support the needs of offshore wind developers.

The Port of Tyne, within 100 nautical miles of the Dogger Bank, Hornsea, Seagreen and Sofia wind farms has reclaimed 30 acres of land and invested almost GBP 10 million in making Tyne Dock Enterprise Park offshore ready. The latest phase in the Port’s infrastructure programme sees the demolition of a 2,000 square metre elevated platform and ancillary work to further clear the site.
