The Tyne Clean Energy Park will allow renewable energy companies to use the port

A new green energy park has been launched by Port of Tyne with the aim of creating a hub for the region’s rapidly growing renewable energy sector

Tyne Clean Energy Park was officially launched by the port as a strategic base for renewable energy companies in the North East, giving them access to one of the only deep-water ports in the country

The move comes months after the port was chosen as the base for Equinor’s flagship operations for what will become the world’s largest offshore wind farm at Dogger Bank, which has enabled it to clear additional land for make room for Tyne Clean Energy Park, which will soon cover 200 acres

Companies joining Equinor will have the opportunity to relocate aspects of their supply chain to the region, meaning a host of manufacturing and assembly operations could soon move to the region.

Port of Tyne CEO Matt Beeton said: “With our access to offshore wind sites and deep water facilities, Tyne Clean Energy Park is certainly the most versatile on the East Coast

“We have created a unique, development-ready blank canvas for renewable energy companies to expand their operations and by facilitating this we can directly contribute to reaching 60% UK content for each wind farm developed It is essential to secure the green recovery that our region and the whole country desperately need « 

Commercial Director Simon Brett added: “There are three distinct supply chains related to the life cycle of offshore wind farms involving component manufacturing, construction services and operations. Each of these require different levels of investment, from plant and infrastructure to staffing, and all will be hosted at the Tyne Clean Energy Park – this is a great opportunity for companies wishing to expand their activities »

The River Tyne is already home to a large cluster or offshore companies, such as South Tyneside Marine College, A&P, Smulders Projects, Shepherd Offshore and TechnipFMC

Port of Tyne is already working to evolve its business operations to become a low carbon industrial hub and has made a clear commitment to decarbonization in its Tyne 2050 strategy Plans are to become carbon neutral by 2030 and « All electric » by 2040

Earlier this week, a report was released which indicated that the wind supply chain in the North East Sea could create 4,500 new jobs over the next five years to support the growing renewable energy industry The first supply chain mapping survey brought together 228 companies from the North East of England to present their plans for the next few years

The investment includes the installation of state-of-the-art equipment and a series of measures put in place to help tackle dust emissions from dry wood pellets that the port brings to the UK
