Centrica plans new offshore wind facility

Centrica plans new offshore wind facility
Centrica has announced its plans to develop a base for its North Sea offshore wind farms in Grimsby.

The Humber region is emerging as a hub for England's offshore wind industry, with experts predicting a super-cluster could form around the ports of Grimsby and Hull.

Energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne also approved plans for the Humber Gateway offshore wind farm earlier this year, which will consist of up to 77 turbines capable of producing up 230MW.

Commenting on the company's new plans, Mick Turner, head of operation and maintenance at Centrica Renewable Energy, said the region was ideal for a permanent base of its operations.

"Grimsby provides excellent infrastructure for our operations and maintenance facility and has a strong skill base. The offshore wind industry is growing apace and Grimsby is well-placed to benefit from it," he added.

Once completed later in the year, the facility will serve the Lynn and Inner Dowsing wind farm, as well as the Lincolnshire wind farm, which is due to come on line in late 2012.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800519964-ADNFCR
