Construction of NnG’s Operations and Maintenance base (O&M) in Eyemouth is really taking shape.

This drone footage from Peter Devlin captures the work carried out so far by Muir Construction – NnG’s contractor for the three storey, 1,040 square metre main building and its two storey, 538 square metre storage warehouse.

Meanwhile, the pontoon was recently lifted into the harbour basin. Inland and Coastal has designed, manufactured and installed a high-quality berthing pontoon on the marine side of the harbour which will ensure the basin can be safely accessed by Crew Transfer Vessels and technicians.

NnG, jointly owned by EDF Renewables UK and ESB, signed a lease with Eyemouth Harbour Trust in February which saw the harbour confirmed as O&M base for the project’s 25-year lifespan.

The O&M base will bring an economic boost to Eyemouth providing up to 50 permanent jobs. Additional benefits available to the residents of Eyemouth and the surrounding area include training, retraining and apprenticeship opportunities.
