Permission sought for key quay changes to Grimsby's Royal Dock

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 10 May 2017

PROPOSALS to remove an old coal jetty from the Royal Dock and install a pontoon for offshore wind crew transfer vessels has been put forward to North East Lincolnshire planners. 

Associated British Ports has put forward the application, with the addition forming part of the plans for Dong Energy’s establishment of an East Coast Hub to serve several of the Danish giant’s wind farms.

As reported, the company is committing £6 billion to the Humber this decade, building on the established Westermost Rough operations and maintenance base close to the Dock Tower, to support Race Bank and Hornsea Project One. 

A gangway, like those in the existing Port of Grimsby East construction base, would allow engineers to walk down from the quayside to the low-lying vessels in the deeper dock, and is to be located close to the award-winning red brick building close to Grimsby Fish Market entrance and the emerging new Marine Control Centre

The coal jetty, not used for years and with the coal hoists long gone, sits in the middle of the dock, and is accessed from Westside Road.
