Supporting offshore energy.

We are a thriving, 24/7 operational port with half a century of experience working within the dynamic and demanding offshore energy sector. When you partner with us you benefit from our strong local supply chain and connections we’ve built over the last 50 years.


Our port facilities and close proximity to the southern North Sea make Great Yarmouth the ideal location for offshore energy developments and maintenance vessels to base and operate themselves from. As the UK’s most eastern deep water facility with heavy lift quays accommodating large offshore support vessel activity, Great Yarmouth maintains water depths in the outer harbour of up to 10 metres at chart datum. We can also increase capacity for customers’ specific needs and operate a 24-hour pilotage service 365 days a year.

We know how valuable your time is, which is why we’ve taken steps to drastically reduce downtime for customers. We offer you a collaborative and efficient service for your vessels in order to minimise delays to operations. With no air draft or lock restrictions, your vessels can call into port and be turned around within 30 minutes for simple crew changes, reducing your downtime costs. That means less time in port and more time doing what you do best.
