Jobs and contracts
Three companies have been announced as the preferred bidders for the Galloper Operations & Maintenance base in deals totaling over £7 million, including Ipswich based R G Carter for the construction of the O&M building; Ipswich based Jackson Civil Engineering Group, for the construction of the access road; and Farrans Construction, for the fabrication and installation of the pontoon. The three contracts will become live once the development is given the green light.
It is anticipated the long-term Operations & Maintenance of the wind farm will bring significant employment and investment benefits to Tendring, the wider Essex area, and the UK.
To support local businesses and job seekers understand more about the long-term opportunities associated with the wind farms operations and maintenance, the Galloper team hosted a Business Breakfast in Harwich in May 2017 and took part in the Tendring Careers Fair in October 2017.
