Renewable Energy

MPI DISCOVERY on Corporation Quay

Ideally positioned on the North East Coast of the UK, Port of Sunderland plays a key role in Round 3 offshore wind farm development zones such as Dogger Bank and Hornsea.

Sunderland is already growing its reputation as a destination for offshore renewable energy and subsea engineering businesses and provides a niche service to companies that can support the ongoing demands of the offshore wind sector.

With heavy involvement in supporting a number of renewable energy projects, including multiple vessel port calls and the storage of assets within the port prior to their deployment in the field, the port continues to garner a reputation of being ready and able to commit to projects that require planning and control over longer periods of time.

A skilled and flexible workforce and proximity to major transport links such as Newcastle International and Durham Tees Valley Airports, the A1(M) and A19 make the port an ideal location for undertaking crew changes and vessel mobilisations.
