SPR is leasing land adjacent to Hamilton Dock in Lowestoft in order to develop a new state-of-the-art operations and maintenance base. The company has appointed NRS Group to design and construct the building, which will include specialist offices and warehousing. The new building will help to support the offshore phase of construction work on the windfarm, as well as the 30-plus years operational lifespan of the project.

ABP will simultaneously construct pontoons and some essential utilities to enable crew transfer vessel to operate from Hamilton Dock, engaging McLaughlin & Harvey to design and construct these facilities.

“Lowestoft is going to be the home of our windfarm for the next three decades, so it is pleasing to see construction work underway at the Port” said Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables Project Director for East Anglia One. “The new facility will be a hive of activity for engineers and technicians, and the base for our marine operations to support the day-to-day operations of the windfarm. In total around 100 people will be employed full-time at the port when East Anglia One is completed, and the thousands of contractors and supply chain operators using the site every year will contribute substantially to the local economy.”
