East Anglia ONE and Galloper, the rest of the East Anglia zone for years to come and then the long-term jobs for operations and maintenance of all the offshore windfarms off Lowestoft for decades to come. “Careers in a world-leading industry will be an aspiration for young people here, who will be watching the port in their home town being busy as the gateway to the creation of new and exciting windfarms that will provide jobs for their future.”


EMPLOYMENT


James Fisher and Sons’ £25m contract for the next two years providing offshore and marine services for construction of the Galloper Offshore windfarm would generate 100 new jobs, mostly in the Lowestoft area. The company, which swelled its staff in OrbisEnergy from four people to more than 20, will maintain its dedicated project management team in OrbisEnergy with a further 20 to 30 onshore and offshore-based personnel forming part of the project’s principal contractor team with another 40 to 50 offshore technicians.


Johnathan elaborated further: “James Fisher has rapidly expanded at OrbisEnergy and now has a substantial presence having created a number of new job opportunities, which is an encouraging sign of things to come. “East Anglia ONE has previously said that its presence at OrbisEnergy was a key influence to it securing permission to develop and we look forward to continuing to support Scottish Power Renewables over this next exciting phase of the project. It has been wonderful to support James Fisher’s development and help celebrate this significant contract success.”


PROJECT DETAIL


The Galloper Windfarm is being constructed by RWE Innogy with the project commencing operations in March 2018. The Galloper windfarm will create 700 jobs during the construction phase and around 90 jobs once operational.


ADDITIONAL ANNOUNCEMENT


ScottishPower Renewables has agreed on a GBP 25 million, 30-year deal with the Port of Lowestoft to act as a construction and operations hub for the East Anglia ONE offshore windfarm. Following discussions with Associated British Ports, ScottishPower Renewables


PORTS AND PORT SERVICES


ABP’s Port of Lowestoft


will utilise the Port of Lowestoft as its construction management base for East Anglia ONE and also the main operations and maintenance hub for the anticipated 30-year lifespan of the windfarm.


INVESTMENT


Initial investment in the port will be used to establish the new operations facility and to carry out upgrades and modifications to the port and surrounding harbour area. This follows on from ScottishPower Renewables’ announcement recently that plans for the East Anglia THREE offshore windfarm had been officially submitted to the Planning Directorate.


PROJECT DETAIL


The development will require up to 172 wind turbines and covers an area of 305km2 in the southern North Sea. Once completed, East Anglia THREE could power the annual electricity demands of more than 750,000 homes. If approved, it is anticipated that onshore construction could begin in 2021, with offshore work starting in 2022 and first power generation achieved in 2023. Jonathan Cole, Managing Director


of Offshore Wind at ScottishPower Renewables commented: “In Lowestoft, we will manage construction activities and operate and maintain our East Anglia ONE project for at least the next three decades.


“Our East Anglia THREE planning submission also highlights our continued commitment to the region and the tremendous potential in the East of England to develop further large offshore wind projects. We have helped to drive costs down in the industry, which increases the prospects of these major infrastructure projects being delivered. We hope for a successful outcome to our application and we look forward to continue growing the offshore wind industry in East Anglia.” Jonathan added: “Offshore wind power is a major part of our huge potential for growth in the energy sector. We have more offshore wind generation off the region’s coast than anywhere in the world and with it real opportunities for local businesses right now. That’s only going to increase with the further development of East Anglia zone.” He concluded: “As the flagship hub for offshore renewables companies in the East, OrbisEnergy’s position in Lowestoft will put our tenants and many other local firms at the heart of the activity.”
