Offshore wind O&M

Grimsby has been home to offshore wind since the Lynn & Inner Dowsing wind farms began construction in 2006. That first installation was officially opened in 2008 and has been followed by a huge expansion in the number and scale of wind farms using Grimsby as a base for operations and maintenance.
