Ports Operator Courts Offshore Wind Farm Developers


PD PORTS offers all the facilities any wind farm operator could need - including deep-water coastal berths, lock-free access and extensive land banks for storage, fabrication and load out.

PD Ports owns and operates the ports on the Tees and at Hartlepool, known as Teesport. The company has identified the renewable energy sector as an important market to develop alongside its long-standing support services for the offshore oil and gas industry.

The port's offshore capabilities at Hartlepool Dock, a coastal rather than river location, offers a wide range of berths suitable for offshore related activities. The port also offers extensive lay-down and construction areas in close proximity to these fully equipped deep-water berths for fabrication work.

Unlike many other ports it has plenty of land for development, which can be made available for supply bases, storage, fabrication and is served by adjacent berths. Hartlepool has extensive land banks with all the requirements that are needed to support the installation process for the offshore wind industry whether it be installation or manufacturing. Hartlepool also offers open access to the North Sea.

"In the longer term, we hope to develop Hartlepool as a centre of excellence for the offshore support sector," said Mr Hopkinson. "We have the skilled personnel in the engineering industry to provide high-quality offshore support services, enabling us to provide efficient and flexible solutions for customers."

PD Ports believes that the ports of Tees and Hartlepool are ideally located for supporting future and current UK wind energy developments. …
