Hull chosen for Lincs port base

UNITED KINGDOM: The English port city of Hull has been chosen as a logistics base for the construction of the Lincs offshore wind farm.

The port, operated by Associated British Ports, will be the focal point for the storage and distribution of transition pieces that will form part of foundations being installed for the scheme's 75 turbines.

The news marks a further step forward for the 250MW Lincs project. Last week, long-running negotiations over a financing package for the wind farm were finalised, resulting in £450 million of debt facilities for the project.

Matt Jukes, ABP port director for Hull, said: "This project is further evidence of the Port of Hull's excellent location by providing both sheltered deep-water berths and a suitable landbank for the offshore wind energy industry. It is a major step forward in Hull's ambition to establish itself as the premier offshore wind logistics hub in the UK."

Located 8 kilometres off the east coast of England, Lincs will comprise 75 Siemens 3.6MW turbines.
