WHITBY AND SCARBOROUGH OFFSHORE WIND – WORKING TOGETHER


The Whitby and Scarborough Offshore Wind network have been making significant steps to secure the exciting opportunities arising from the offshore wind sector.


ENVIABLE LOCATION Recognising that Whitby is the closest port to the Round 3 Dogger Bank site and Scarborough a close second the Borough Council established the ‘Network’ over 2 years ago.


Since that time the ‘Network’ has been working tirelessly to prepare its ports, infrastructure, education, training and supply chain companies in readiness.


REGIONAL INTEREST This work is starting to pay dividends with developers and contractors expressing interest in the ports and the considerable offering of the wider region.


Alex Richards: Project Manager for Whitby Wind Network said: “These are very exciting times. Our target is to secure operations and maintenance, survey, service and supply activity from our shores. Our ports offer 24 hour access to the sea and provide the closest link to the Dogger Bank site as well as being well located for others.


“The people, skills and training are in place and the supply chain is already established and has been serving the offshore oil and gas industry for many years, we believe we are more than fit for purpose in this area.


“We are collaborating with our regional partners to cluster our offering. If the region is to truly benefit we must act as one cohesive body. The Yorkshire and Humber need to stand together to present a united and welcoming offer to the offshore industry”.


Cllr Derek Bastiman, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration & Planning added enthusiastically: “When we work together our coast covers over 100miles of “shop front” to the North Sea, leading to a world class industrial hinterland which can provide everything the offshore industry needs. The Yorkshire and Humber region has it all. With the right leadership and organisation we are world beaters. This is what we are trying to achieve.”
