UK port breaks ground at O&M base

The base will be home to the team that operate and maintain the 353 MW wind farm, located approximately 30 km off the coast of Suffolk. Construction of the O&M facility is planned to take 12 months to complete.

Commenting on the start of works, Mark Seaman, finance director of Hutchison Ports (UK), owner of Harwich International, said: “Our strategic location, providing sheltered, lock-free facilities close to the North Sea is ideal for offshore support activities. Having already acted as the construction base for a number of wind farm developments, the new base will provide a purpose-built facility around which further opportunities in the offshore energy sector can be progressed over the next few years.”
