DONG Energy ditches marine energy park
Published: 10 Aug 2016 By Grace Kimberley
Dong Energy, who is a major investor for the Immingham marine energy park on the Humber estuary has withdrawn its investment in the project. Dong were going to use the park as headquarters for what could have been the world’s largest offshore wind farm off the east coast.
Able UK were the company set to build the park and has announced it will remain committed to the success of the project. The decision from Dong Energy was made after the Offshore Wind Industry Council made a review of East Coast Staging and Construction Facilities.
"It [the review] has concluded that current ports can support demand from the anticipated offshore wind project pipeline and it would be difficult to justify the scale of investment required to promote a single large-scale staging and manufacturing facility,"
Able UK will be looking into the details of the report, but still insists that the project will play a “crucial part” in making the Humber a “world-class energy estuary”.
