Ports and Maritime Project
Able Marine Energy Park
Rendel is carrying out a Category 3 check on the £200 million Able Marine Energy Park (AMEP) in Humberside.
AMEP is a bespoke designed port for renewable energy, in particular, offshore wind turbines. It will cover 800 acres plus multi-use facilities, and will include 1,389m of new heavy-duty, deep-water quays. The marine park will provide facilities for the manufacture, storage, assembly and deployment of the latest generation of wind turbines. It will create a ‘cluster’ for renewable energy through its proximity to the sea, as well as the large area of land to accommodate the manufacturing and storage facilities. It will enable the opportunity to provide UK-based renewable energy production with the potential for export to Europe.
Rendel’s previous maritime experience on the Humber goes back 116 years and includes design check and construction supervision of the Immingham Oil Terminal in 1966, and subsequent repairs on the jetties of this facility; logistics studies for the Immingham Coal Terminal; maintenance of shipping channels on the River Humber using a trailing suction hopper dredger; flooding reviews for the Humber Estuary; and the design of the Dutch River Swing Bridge.
