DONG Energy will build a new operations and maintenance (O&M) facility in Kings Wharf, Seacombe, UK, to serve its two offshore wind farms in the area. The facility will consist of a new office and warehouse building on a disused site.
It will serve the existing Burbo Bank offshore wind farm and the new Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm, currently under construction. Up to 75 jobs will be created during the construction of the facility, while around 45 people will be permanently employed at the site once it is operational. The whole facility will comprise an area of approximately 1,800 square metres. Enabling works for the site are currently underway and the main contractor is expected to commence construction later in the year with completion scheduled for mid-2017.
