A new offshore wind hub at Freeport East Harwich, to be built on over 110 hectares of land adjacent to Harwich International, will provide dedicated installation, engineering and manufacturing facilities, as well as supporting office space and ancillary functions.

The offshore wind hub will include a high-spec innovation and technology centre to attract innovative businesses, supporting cutting-edge manufacturing and engineering solutions for offshore wind.

In addition to construction of new offshore wind farms, Freeport East is ideally located to support offshore wind Operations and Maintenance (O&M) activities.

The Energy Skills Centre at Harwich, operated by Colchester Institute, offers workshop and classroom facilities to support engineering-based education and training in the local area.

Strategically located, offering vast space, as well as deep water facilities and lock-free access, Freeport East has huge advantages for companies operating in the offshore wind sector.
