New Grimsby offshore base to create over 70 jobs
Work has officially started on a new multi-million pound offshore construction and operations base in Grimsby.
Contractor Tolent has begun construction on the base on behalf of offshore wind farm Triton Knoll, and is simultaneously commencing a recruitment drive for the project.
Constructed across almost four acres of port location, the project itself creates opportunities for local jobs and suppliers as well as over 70 high skilled jobs which will operate out of the new base.
Julian Garnsey, project director for Triton Knoll, commented: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome Tolent, another north east based-firm to the Triton Knoll team. This further reinforces our commitment to investing in and creating long-term, skilled jobs in this region.
“This work in Grimsby represents an exciting phase for Triton Knoll, as it establishes our long-term home in the region, and prepares the way for the start of offshore construction which will begin in early 2020.”
Nick Hazelgrave, regional commercial director for Tolent, said: “This contract win is another great addition to our work in the offshore sector, adding to a variety of experience across sectors including industrial, commercial, retail, hospitality and housing.
“Triton Knoll is a new client for us and it’s been fantastic to learn more about their activities across this industry as we walked around the site today. Our team is now underway with delivering another quality job as we look to increase our work across the central region of the UK.”
