Great Yarmouth targets offshore energy industry
October 10 - In the UK, the management of Great Yarmouth outer harbour say that it is taking steps to make it more attractive as a base for the offshore energy industry.
Seen by some to have been a white elephant since it was opened in in 2010, HLPFI understands that Eastport UK is investing about GBP10 million to narrow the harbour mouth to "calm sea conditions", making it more suitable to the needs of the offshore industry.
The harbour project has been criticised in the past for not bringing jobs and investment, but interviewed by the BBC, Eastport UK chief executive Jamie Frater said he sees a "buoyant" future.
The project was originally conceived with container ships and ro-ro vessels in mind, but that has not been forthcoming and now Frater says that the owners are looking at offshore energy - windfarms, oil and gas - where they see a very buoyant future.
The BBC reported that Frater said that there has been a large number of inquiries from offshore windfarm developers and construction companies in the last two months.
