Architects are set to reveal their initial designs for a port in Whitby that will service the offshore windfarm industry.

Dalby Offshore Services has been working with Group Ginger Ltd which is based in Leeds after the vessel operators was appointed by the borough council.

Dalby Offshore and Scarborough Borough Council have been working on a project that will see Endeavour Wharf in Whitby radically re-developed to become a key operations and maintenance centre for the offshore wind industry in light of recent planning approvals.

Following the appointment of the architect, Group Ginger Ltd. of Leeds, and meetings with local stakeholder groups, Dalby Offshore Services is now seeking public comment on the concept design.

The new buildings will house Dalby’s Headquarters and also will act as a combined centre for Operations and Maintenance, marine control, training and public exhibition.

The building will be complemented by the development of a pontoon facility at the quay. Whitby has open access to the sea and some 300m of wharf space available to support both current and the next generation of fast support craft

An exhibition of the concept design will be available for viewing at the Tourist Information centre, Langbourne Road tomorrow (Saturday) and the public are being invited to provide comments and feedback.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss the design directly with representatives of Dalby Offshore Services, Group Ginger and the Council at a public consultation event being held at The Coliseum next month.

It will be between 11am and 3pm on Saturday September 5 with two opportunities to see a presentation from the architects.
