The Southern North Sea’s (SNS) offshore wind farms are readily accessible from the energy focused ports of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Both have built significant expertise in the construction, operations and maintenance of offshore wind projects. Freeport status at the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich is set to further strengthen the East of England’s clean-energy capabilities, providing new opportunities for investment to support the UK to achieve its clean growth ambitions.
