Welcome to the Great Yarmouth Business guide on-line, a first of its kind, showcasing the local industry and world class port facilities, as well as the excellent provision of quality accommodation, business meeting rooms, corporate entertainment, restaurants and services there are for business travellers in Great Yarmouth.
Situated on the most eastern edge of the Norfolk coast between the North Sea and the picturesque Norfolk Broads, Great Yarmouth is firmly in the centre of the European shipping and off-shore energy industries.
Given its location, it's no wonder that the town boasts world-class knowledge in the offshore industry, with ship-building and repair expertise, a 24-hour accessible port with deep-water outer harbour, considerable diving and surveying experience and a growing involvement in the offshore wind industry.
The Port of Great Yarmouth has operated for nearly 1000 years on the European stage, serving fishing, shipbuilding, timber, agriculture and offshore industries. Its central 24/7 facilities have served gas platforms in the Southern North Sea for more than 50 years. Great Britain's first off-shore wind farm, installed at Scroby Sands, started to supply the National Grid with power in 2004. The iconic turbines are easily visible from beaches up and down the borough of Great Yarmouth.
Great Yarmouth has been able to develop a highly skilled energy marine supply chain which is innovative, adaptable and in demand across the world. As the search for sustainable renewable energy continues, Great Yarmouth continues to be at the fore of many energy projects off the East Anglian coast line with a buoyant future for Great Yarmouth's marine energy sector, supported by a range of engineering, electronics and other service companies.
