Development at ABP Lowestoft under way

The first phase of a £300,000 demolition project to clear a new 13-acre development site has been completed at the Port of Lowestoft’s Shell Quay

The project, to provide more development land for Associated British Ports and surrounding local businesses, brings ABP’s total investment in the Port of Lowestoft to £1M in the last quarter.

 

Last month ABP signed a new contract with Goodchild Marine Services Limited to construct a new boat for the port.

 

In addition to these two latest investments, ABP Lowestoft has benefited from a £10M investment by ScottishPower Renewables in a new operations and maintenance (O&M) facility. This is thought to be the largest private sector investment in Lowestoft since the £7M investment in the Tower Road Retail Park.

The demolition is focused on the former Shell Lowestoft base which served the Southern North Sea operations of Shell and was an important employer until its closing in 2004 and is an important phase of making the site available to support future local business growth.

 

Having started in August 2018, the demolition programme is progressing to schedule. So far 8 acres have been cleared with the remainder of the area to be free of all structures by early 2019 and made ready for use by industry.

 

Andrew Harston, ABP Short Sea Ports Director, said: “We are committed to investing in the future of the region and will continue to improve our offering to existing and potential customers.

 

“The new site will afford massive potential for a range of different industrial uses. It would make a perfect base for additional operations and maintenance centres to support the offshore wind industry, which would further underpin Lowestoft’s position as the East of England’s renewable energy hub. We have engaged architects to help bring this vision to life for our energy partners.”
