Local Economy

Our Operations and Maintenance building will be located in the port of Newhaven, and will help to kick start a regeneration programme in the area.

The O&M base will accommodate up to 65 full time, permanent staff and a floating pontoon on the portside will be used for crew transfer vessels, to transport the maintenance technicians to the turbines.  The O&M base will enhance the local economy as staff working and living in the area will use local shops and other facilities, and we will also contract with local businesses who can supply support services to the O&M base.
