Following the recent success in the design and delivery of the Green Port Hull Offshore Wind Turbine Assembly Facility, Doran Consulting are delighted to be appointed as Lead Marine and Civils Designer for GRAHAM on the South Bank Quay Project.

The 1.2km heavy-lift quay will provide direct access to Dogger Bank, the world's largest offshore wind farm. The development plans are set to position Teesworks as the UK’s premier offshore wind and clean energy hub.

 

KEY FACTS

  • A new 1km quay for offshore and renewable activities.
  • Berth pocket to 90 metres.
  • Berth depth to -15.6 metres.

 

A dedicated £90million quay will service the offshore sector, offering a 125 acre hard standing for manufacturing, storage and mobilisation. With immediate access to the River Tees and the North Sea, the 1km quay will provide global firms with 500 acres of development land, as well as unlocking the wider Teesworks site. The zone is primely positioned for activity relating to Dogger Bank — the world's largest offshore wind farm, located 60 miles off the North East coast.


"Global offshore wind manufacturer GE Renewable Energy is already signed up build a multimillion-pound state-of-the-art wind turbine blade manufacturing factory on the site, taking advantage of the favourable location and assets. It is expected the South Bank will house up to three manufacturers to support the development of the next-generation of offshore wind projects. "Teesworks.co.uk
