Floating Offshore Wind

Plymouth is strategically located on the South Coast of England with clear steaming routes to the Western Approaches. It is the largest and best-connected city in the Great South West area with robust rail, road and sea connections.

With a variety of wharfs, docks and marina facilities all sheltered by the natural harbour of Plymouth Sound and two breakwaters, the city is home to the most comprehensive shore side marine offering in the South West. Its significant manufacturing and engineering capabilities makes Plymouth the ideal place for serving many aspects of the planned floating offshore wind developments in the Celtic Sea.

Home to the largest Naval Base in Western Europe and the largest commercial port in the South West, Plymouth’s sheltered waters have been at the forefront of British maritime operations for hundreds of years.
