England’s leading offshore energy ports Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft sit just a few miles apart on the East of England coast.

Both ports have been the UK’s the leading centres for offshore gas exploration and extraction in the Southern North Sea (SNS) for over 50 years and will be central to the expected further 30 years of gas operations and decommissioning activity.

Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft, along with nearby Wells, have emerged as strategic centres for the rapidly increasing offshore wind sector- ideally located to support all aspects of East of England Energy Zone offshore wind development including construction, manufacturing, pre-assembly and operations and maintenance (O&M) with some of the world’s largest wind farm developments close to the East of England coast.

The importance of the ports to the UK energy sector has been recognized with Enterprise Zone status for prime land in the area.
