Expansion and development opportunities

A wealth of well-located land and available buildings near the ports of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft make them a prime location for energy companies in the East of England Energy Zone (EEEZ).

Both towns offer a range of development areas including quayside sites and specialist business parks – something to suit every need for energy companies whether in offshore wind, upstream oil and gas or decommissioning.

The UK Government has granted Enterprise Zone status to a significant area of development land in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft recognising the potential for the area as one of Europe’s leading locations for offshore energy.

Beacon Park, Great Yarmouth is an ideal location for businesses looking to exploit opportunities across the sector and has welcomed a string of energy occupiers in recent years including Probe Oil Tools, SMS, Proserv, Gee-Force and Pharos Marine Automatic Power. The fully-landscaped 19.5ha site offers a range of high-quality, ready-built offices and workshops of various sizes for businesses seeking immediate occupation and has Enterprise Zone status.

OrbisEnergy is the flagship building for businesses keen to capture the economic benefits from offshore wind, wave and tidal technologies in Lowestoft. Situated at Britain’s most easterly point, OrbisEnergy features state-of-the art offices, ranging from 20-100sqm and offers extensive conference and exhibition facilities as well as the option for virtual tenancies.

ABP unveiled its vision, for a broad range of business development opportunities available at the Port of Lowestoft as East of England’s new Energy Hub in early 2018. Developed in partnership with acclaimed London Architects Chetwoods the plans illustrate the business potential of the Port of Lowestoft’s 13 acres development site, which has direct quay access

The EEEZ team works closely with property owners in the area and can quickly help potential investors identify sites and properties which meet their requirements.
