Peel Ports and ASCO have joined forces in a long-term strategic partnership aimed at supporting the energy sector in Great Yarmouth and promoting future sustainability for the port
By working in collaboration, the two organisations aim to support existing customers and attract new ones to the port by offering increased flexibility to meet the demands of the oil and gas, renewable energy and decommissioning sectors operating out of Great Yarmouth.
The 12-year partnership will officially commence from January 2019 and will see ASCO assume operational responsibility for two more berths at the Peel Ports port.
Glenn Hurren, ASCO’s Southern North Sea Director said: "Our new partnership gives the additional capacity we needed to expand our operations in Great Yarmouth. We now have a stronger base for building marine collaboration in the UK Southern North Sea sector and the ability to provide a flexible solution for our customers covering Peterhead, Aberdeen and Great Yarmouth."
The partnership will generate long term job creation and sustainability through the attraction of new business to the region, said Peel Port.
Port Director Richard Goffin said: “Through working with ASCO, we will be able to harness the enormous potential that Great Yarmouth has as a key base for oil and gas, renewable energy and decommissioning operations.
“We will bring together best-in-class expertise and facilities to promote further collaboration, diversify offerings and services offered by both companies and ensure a solid foundation for continued growth and investment at Great Yarmouth."
