AP Group Renewables Sector Capabilities



A&P Group welcomes the Government’s £160 million pledge to the offshore wind sector.

The pledge forms part of Prime Minster Boris Johnson’s commitment to “Build Back Greener” and will be used to upgrade the ports and facilities that develop wind turbines whilst supporting the build of new fixed and floating wind farms.

It is hoped this investment will quadruple the UK’s offshore wind production from the current ten gigawatts to 40. By committing to this latest round of investment, the Government believes the offshore wind sector will be able to supply enough electricity to power the equivalent of every home by 2030.

The investment also comes with an aspiration to create thousands of new jobs in the sector.

David McGinley, Chief Executive Officer Cammell Laird Shiprepairers and Shipbuilders Ltd Atlantic and Atlantic and Peninsula Marine Services said: “A&P Group welcomes the Government’s pledge to the offshore wind sector. This new investment will ensure the UK can maintain its position as world leader in renewables and provide the UK supply chain with a platform to further develop their services; here in the UK and through export opportunities to the world’s offshore wind community.

“The offshore wind sector is a key area of focus for A&P Group and we are committed to developing our skills and infrastructure to support this sector. A&P currently has a team of 53 apprentices, who are being trained in fabrication, electronics and maintenance - vital skills which will benefit the offshore wind sector for years to come. 

“This new round of investment will ensure the UK supply chain is given the confidence to continue to collaborate to ensure the infrastructure is in place to support this opportunity.”

A&P Group deploys its transferable skills, expertise and commercial agility to provide the offshore wind sector with all the precision skills needed to sustain their operations here in UK waters, Europe and beyond.

A&P Tyne is A&P Group’s lead strategic site for the offshore wind sector – thanks to its prime location on the East Coast and proximity to the North Sea. The facility is strategically situated for Dogger Bank, Sofia, Norfolk Vanguard, Boreas, Seagreen, Neart na Gaoithe, Moray East and West, Hornsea and extension projects as well as others across Europe

A&P Tyne’s 66-acre facility on the south side of the River Tyne, comprises of extensive workshop facilities in excess of 23,000m2 with the capacity to undertake simultaneous major fabrication works in parallel with our marine and port services.

A&P Falmouth is superbly located to support renewable activity off the south west coast of England, offering fabrication, construction, maintenance, port and marine services to developers and service companies.

A&P recognises the huge industrial potential for the south west economy and is a member of the Local Enterprise Zone initiative. A&P Falmouth is also working closely with Cornwall and Isle of Scilly (COIS) LEP to consider and promote the opportunities for floating offshore wind development in the south west.
