Once operational the facility will provide the global offshore company with a base for 45 full-time staff. It will provide storage for spares and maintenance equipment for the Burbo Bank offshore wind farm, in addition to the Burbo Bank Extension.

The Burbo Bank Extension will include 32 of the world’s most powerful wind turbines that will be installed over 2 years between 2015 and 2017 in an area covering 40km2.

The facility we are building will comprise a single storage warehouse along with office space, changing, welfare and ancillary facilities across two floors.

Regional managing director of Robertson North West, Carl Wilde, said: “We are delighted to start construction on this exciting development that will regenerate a site in an important docklands location.

“We look forward to working closely with DONG Energy to deliver this project, and providing them with a quality base from which they can operate and maintain their wind farms.“

Brian McMorrow, senior construction engineer with DONG Energy, commented: “It was important for us to use a regionally based construction company so we’re really pleased to be working with Robertson North West.

“DONG Energy is committed to investing in the UK and we are very proud to be playing an important role in the redevelopment of this part of Kings Wharf.“
