Port of Lowestoft showcases potential as new East of England Energy Hub

This year’s East of England Energy Group (EEEGR)’s Southern North Sea Conference on 28 February will see ABP showcase the broad range of business development opportunities available at the Port of Lowestoft as East of England’s new Energy Hub.

During the flagship conference, ABP will be unveiling its vision, developed in partnership with acclaimed London Architects Chetwoods. Plans will illustrate the business potential of the Port of Lowestoft’s 13 acres development site, which has direct quay access and will be available from 19th March.

In 2017, the port welcomed more than 6000 CTV (Crew Transfer Vessels), thanks to its 3500m of quay, the ability to accommodate vessels up to 125m LOA with depths up to 6m and the port’s ideal location to serve the Southern North Sea.

Paul Brooks, ABP Port Manager, said: “The Port of Lowestoft has a proud history of serving the offshore sector, initially by supporting the oil and gas industries and more recently renewables.

“During the years our commitment to excellence has allowed us to build strong relationships with key customers including Shell, SSE and most recently Scottish Power, providing us with the necessary expertise to continue to affirm the Port of Lowestoft’s place as East of England’s innovative Energy Hub.”
