Cammell Laird chief executive John Syvret CBE said the company is now in a robust position to take a leading role in Britain's wind energy revolution.
"Working with RWE we have undertaken a programme of infrastructure investments," he said. "This includes the creation of much deeper berths meaning that our quays can accommodate the largest wind farm vessels operating in the Irish Sea. Additionally, a heavy load out quay has been completed. It is one of very few quaysides constructed to handle weights of up to 5,000 tonnes. With wind farm monopiles and transition pieces weighing up to 700 tonnes each, and substations up to 2,000 tonnes the yard now has the infrastructure, location, skills and capacity to support wind farm construction across Europe."
Mr Syvret said to further expand the facilities offered by Cammell Laird, fabrication is currently underway on a new crew transfer pontoon. This will mean that the upgraded area can handle vessels, heavy equipment and crew from one central and accessible location.
"The new infrastructure will work together with our existing fabrication and assembly facilities to offer the wind energy sector the complete engineering solution from one location," he said.
