The Port of Blyth continues to enhance its reputation as one of the UK’s leading offshore energy support bases with the launch of Bates Clean Energy Terminal, a major low carbon redevelopment scheme. Developed to support the clean energy sector, Bates Clean Energy Terminal offers enhanced facilities and the opportunity for low carbon focused investment and innovation, strategically located in a lead region for offshore energy with extensive research and development, a growing clean energy skill base and a well-developed supply chain, particularly around the Blyth Estuary.
The terminal is the result of a £10m+ redevelopment programme that has delivered a heavy load out quay, new roads and hardstanding, a heavy-lift electric crane and warehouse upgrades.
The terminal is served by two heavy lift quays offering up to 7.6M LAT suitable for vessels up to 160m LOA . The terminal benefits from a RoRo pontoon, more than 16,000 sq m of existing warehousing and workshop space, a marine fuels facility and 5HA of open storage/development land available.
Port Training Services’ unique Wind Turbine Training Facility is located on the site, offering a whole range of real-world training opportunities to the renewables sector. Bates Clean Energy Terminal also offers direct access to the adjacent Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult research and testing facilities.
All operational terminals at the Port benefit from a wide range of handling equipment and experience for lifting project pieces up to 600 tonne and moving pieces up to 2,500 tonne by RoRo and SPMTs.
