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 ABP and surrounding local businesses, brings ABP’s total investment in the Port of Lowestoft to £1 million in the last quarter.

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