Under the terms of the deal, Belfast Harbour would fund the £40 million development, which would cover 50 acres and would include a 450m quay.

Construction could begin in 2013.

However, Dong spokesman said the deal was dependent on the company getting financing for its wind farms in the Irish Sea. He said a decision would be taken by the end of the year.

This would include the 500MW Duddon Sands project, as well as expansions to the 90MW Burbo Bank and 367MW Walney developments.
