McLaughlin & Harvey wins Lowestoft harbour design

ABP’s vision for LEEF is to provide a facility that supports operations & maintenance and construction  for the offshore wind farms, helping to transform Lowestoft into a leading offshore energy hub.

As part of the next phase of the project, ABP will invest around £1m in the detailed design of infrastructural upgrades of the site, including the addition of extra capacity to accommodate the next generation of larger offshore support vessels.

Seamus Devlin, McLaughlin & Harvey civil engineering director, said that the design phase was anticipated to last around six months with the construction following over the next 12 months and potential for vessels to begin using the facility from 2024.

Andrew Harston, ABP Director for Wales and Short Sea Ports, said, “The winning design for LEEF will enable us to deliver this hugely exciting project and create a competitive edge for companies across the Southern North Sea (SNS) energy sector.”
