Offshore Energy and Logistics

Strategically located for the Southern North Sea, Great Yarmouth has been the principle operations base for the region’s oil and gas sector for more than half a century. The borough is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, boasting England’s most concentrated and extensive reservoir of offshore expertise and experience.

Great Yarmouth is a leading offshore wind hub, home to the UK’s first commercial windfarm, Scroby Sands. Globally-significant projects worth more than £5.5bn are being built from here, with huge opportunities ahead.

In addition, Great Yarmouth has a growing reputation as a centre of excellence for recycling redundant gas platforms, and is already sharing in a £3bn potential market in North Sea decommissioning.

Since 1945, there has been a steady growth of businesses developing cutting-edge technologies that have a global impact.

Today, a cluster of high-tech businesses export electronic and advanced manufacturing products and services around the world, supporting diverse industries including automotive, IT, defence, aerospace and aviation.
