In order to successfully lure our members in to Mersey Maritime’s May Face-2-Face meeting first thing on the Tuesday morning following the long weekend, we arranged a guest presentation that was sure to be of interest to all of our members.
Our presenter for the May F2F meeting was Lee Rollason, Head Of Burbo Bank Operations with Dong Energy. Lee shared with us information and statistics on who Dong Energy are, where the company is headed and what supply chain opportunities may exist.
The Burbo Bank wind farm in Liverpool Bay is currently comprised of 25 efficient wind turbines situated close to the entrance to the River Mersey, approximately 4 miles from the Sefton coastline and 4.5 miles from North Wirral. The wind farm is exposed to the full force of the wind from west, which makes it an ideal location for offshore wind turbines. Construction is now underway on the Burbo Bank Extension and DONG Energy have publicly stated their commitment to investing in the UK and ensuring opportunities continue in the UK supply chain.
