RWE invests in new Grimsby Hub operations maintenance baseRWE win invest the creation of an operations hub at Grimsby’s Royal Dock located at the UK east coast. The new ‘Grimsby Hub’ facility will expand the existing Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm base and will be the home for RWE’s team for component exchanges and offshore repairs.
As part of the move, RWE’s 1.4GW Sofia Offshore Wind Farm will also locate its operations and maintenance activities to the new hub in future. In total, RWE expects the new facility will accommodate around 140 RWE employees, with potentially around 60 new jobs created, plus indirect jobs required in support. The location of the Grimsby Hub was chosen because of its proximity to existing and future projects and its deep-water quayside, which is suited to the use of Service Operations Vessels (SOVs). RWE will lease an additional 1.3 acres of land to enable the expansion. Construction is due to start in Q1 2022 and will run until Q4 2022, with first occupation expected later in 2023. Once constructed, the new facility will include a joint control room offering 24/7 monitoring of multiple sites, new shared office space, and separate warehouse facilities.
