Dong Energy plans UK offshore wind hub

October 7 - Dong Energy has revealed plans to build a "game-changing" offshore wind operations and maintenance hub in Grimsby, UK.

Subject to planning approval, the new facility will be developed in the town's Royal Dock and will initially support the Westermost Rough, Race Bank and Hornsea Project One offshore wind farms. It will also have the capacity to support other east coast wind farms in the future, said Dong Energy.

The hub will be served mainly by offshore support vessels and also include a marine coordination centre providing services to offshore operations across the UK.

"This new operational hub in Grimsby will be a game changing industry first, raising the bar for the way we serve offshore wind farms. It will generate direct and indirect job opportunities in the Humber region, as well as opportunities for the local supply chain," said Brent Cheshire, Dong Energy's UK country chairman.

"It represents a massive vote of confidence to the UK offshore wind industry and confirms our commitment to the Humber region where by 2019 we expect to have invested around GBP6 billion (USD7.4 billion)."

The new hub will sit alongside the existing Westermost Rough operation and maintenance facility, using additional land to be leased from Associated British Ports (ABP).
