GoBe supporting Able UK in their exciting new South Tees port development
GoBe is pleased to be providing technical support to Able UK in their proposed Able South Tees development. GoBe’s role as marine ecology technical adviser involves EIA and HRA drafting, as well as development of a Net Gain package which reflects Able UK’s desire to contribute positively towards the management of the Tees Estuary.
GoBe’s project manager for the work, Sean Leake, noted “Able South Tees will provide a specialist port development to support the continued growth in the offshore renewables sector in the North Sea. This role is another exciting opportunity with GoBe providing continued support to the UK’s ports sector, but also reflects GoBe’s expertise in supporting every stage of the offshore wind industry from early stage site selection, consent management, and the post consent phases, through to essential supporting infrastructure such as Able South Tees”. Richard Cram, Able’s Engineering Director, commented: “The proposed development seeks to put Teesside at the heart of the burgeoning offshore wind sector. A first phase will see the development of c 1050m of deep-water quays with a supporting hinterland in excess of 55.3 acres and provide two adjacent installation bases. We’re pleased to have GoBe Consultants amongst our team of technical experts supporting the development”
