Associated British Ports (ABP) has announced its plans for the Port of Lowestoft, which will help create a competitive edge for companies across the Southern North Sea (SNS) energy sector and the wider East Anglia region.
Over the next five years, ABP will develop the Lowestoft Eastern Energy Facility (LEEF), which will bring upgrades to marine facilities at Lowestoft’s Outer Harbour. The project will deliver port infrastructure to meet the offshore energy industry’s current and future demands, ensuring the port can accommodate the next generation of offshore support vessels. The facility will provide a site that is suitable for Operations & Maintenance (O&M) activities in addition to quayside suitable for construction support activities. When complete, the project will provide 360 metres of berthing space for simultaneous use by three SOVs and deliver up to 8 acres of flexible storage and marshalling area. In addition, it will create around 5,000 sqft of new office space with direct quayside access.
