Equinor CEO visits Port of Tyne and Dogger Bank O&M base
Port of Tyne was host to the CEO of Equinor, Anders Opedal, Pal Eitrheim (Executive Vice President), Alex Grant (Senior VP), Halfdan Brustad (Vice President) and other senior members of the Dogger Bank project team to see the construction site for the Equinor / SSE O&M base at the Port.
The visit formed part of the CEO’s trip to the UK and the event at the Port’s Innovation Hub offered the opportunity for him to meet the project team to show his support and gain a hands-on understanding of the project and upcoming milestones.
Lucy Armstrong and Graeme Hardie hosted a land and water guided tour of Tyne Dock Enterprise Park – the site of the O&M base for the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Dogger Bank.
Lucy Armstrong, Chair of Port of Tyne, said: “It has been a pleasure to host Anders and the team at the Port today. What a great opportunity to understand how every partner in the Dogger Bank project is helping to create green, clean and carbon neutral renewable electricity for decades to come. The Port is so proud to be part of this much wider team.”
The development will act as the catalyst for further offshore developers to locate at the port, and take advantage of the economic benefits of locating in the deepest and least restricted offshore port in the North East of England. Click here for more information on Tyne Clean Energy Park.
