The ABLE Marine Energy Park (AMEP) will be one of the major producers in of wind energy turbines in the UK. With its location on the south bank of the River Humber, it is ideally located to take advantage of the growing demand for wind energy in the North Sea, which is slowly becoming the heart of the largest offshore wind market in the world. AMEP offers 1,340m of heavy duty, deep water quays and the total development is an area of 1,297 acres of land, making it specifically designed for the marine renewables sector. It will provide a multi-user facility for the manufacture, storage, assembly and deployment of the next generation of offshore wind turbines.
At present the design of the quay has been completed and the quay will allow both ordinary and jack-up installation vessels to dock at the facility. Currently, the Pumping Station is under construction and should be operational by mid-2018. Able are also constructing two new access roads onto the site to ensure the site has the right transport links to the main road network. Over the last two years, to ensure the site can handle heavy duty equipment and cargo, over two million tonnes of stone has been delivered and spread over the site ready for the next stage of construction.
