The premier offshore energy base at the Port of Blyth, Northumberland has green, renewable energy as its core. The site can supply green energy and is in close proximity to the “North Sea Link”. The site has a market access to the offshore energy development in the North Sea, including Round 3 Zone offshore wind projects at Dogger Bank, Hornsea and the Firth of Forth. There is also a well establish offshore energy and fabrication cluster.
The Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult provides world class test assets and the heritage in the energy sector and expertise at Blyth enables Northumberland Energy Park to play a pivotal role in the development and commercialisation of offshore renewables.
Northumberland Energy Park Phase 1
Northumberland Energy Park Phase 1 consists of the strategic riverside site with associated dock. The area is the subject of the current £35m public investment enabling works covering the former Stations A and B Blyth Power Station and the Ash Barge Dock. These enabling works will provide an extended and deep-water berth at the Ash Dock.
The site offers a current power capacity of 20 MVA with the potential of up to 100 MVA from renewable sources. It also provides 2 adjacent National Grid substations which provide access to the National Grid.
Northumberland Energy Park Phase 2
Northumberland Energy Park 2 is located beside the North Sea Link which is the world’s longest subsea connector allowing the export of power generated via wind power and the importing of green electricity from Norway generated by hydro-electric power stations. The 14.5 hectare site utilises a service corridor which provides quay access with deep-water (9.0 LAT) and jack up barge capability. Plus, access to four additional deep-water berths at Battleship Wharf.
Northumberland Energy Park Phase 3
Northumberland Energy Park phase 3 is home to the UK’s premier battery Gigafactory site. The site has planning permission for the establishment of the largest battery Gigafactories in the UK and outline planning permission for an adjoining supplier park to house its supply chain.
The 95 hectare site will have the capacity produce 30GW of lithium-ion batteries a year powering up to 300,000 vehicles, or providing massive energy storage capacity to support a growing green energy strategy.
Northumberland Energy Park Phase 4
Northumberland Energy Park 4 is located to the North of the gigafactory site and offers 36HA of development land. The greenfield site is in a premier location to support the gigafactory supply chain opportunity. The site also boasts a readymade skills base with a population of 930,961 within a 30 minute drive time with approximately 1.6m within a catchment area of around 45 minutes.
