As a leading UK offshore energy support base, Port of Blyth can provide everything a client may need to complete a project successfully, safely and on time/on budget.

The Port offers heavy lift quays, existing property, open storage, plenty of development land, a mature supply chain capable of supporting the most complex of projects and a highly experienced workforce committed to excellence.

Blyth is also home to the influential Energy Central partnership intent on supporting inward investment from the renewables sector, the world leading test facilities of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, the £35m Northumberland Energy Park development and EDF’s Blyth Offshore Demonstrator Wind Farm.

Offshore equipment/component manufacture

Over the last decade the Port has provided support for numerous major equipment/component manufacturing projects delivered on site by several of its leading tenants. Royal IHC, Osbit and Texo have regularly benefitted from assistance with significant heavy lift and SPMT operations, logistics, vessel calls, training and more. With a mature supply chain and land development sites available, the Port is well positioned to support further projects and incoming clients.

  • Regular 100-300 tonne lifts
  • 600 tonne tandem lifts
  • 2500+ tonnes barge operations

Wind farm component mobilisation/marshalling

Having handled thousands of component parts for both onshore and offshore wind farm developments, it is safe to say that the Port is a reliable offshore wind partner. With up to 15HA of land immediately available across two secure terminals served by heavy lift quays, Port of Blyth is well placed to offer significant project marshalling support, while its heavy lift capability and experience is of significant value.

With safety prioritised, clients often choose Blyth due to the Port’s ability to mobilise multiple vessels at once and a mature supply chain, including relationships with leading heavy lift partners on site.
