The port of Tyne in the UK is investing nearly GBP10 million (USD12.9 million) in the Tyne Dock Enterprise Park to support the offshore wind energy sector. 

The site provides access to deepsea berths and is within 100 nautical miles of the Dogger Bank, Hornsea, Seagreen and Sofia wind farms, said the port. 

As part of the investment, the port has reclaimed 30 acres (12.14 ha) of land. Matt Beeton, port of Tyne ceo, said: “Offshore wind is a sector in which the north east has particular strengths and an area of strategic importance for the regional economy, with the potential to build on our already globally important offshore energy and subsea cluster.”
