About Able Humber Port
*** This site has recently been granted Enterprise Zone status ***

Able Marine Energy Park is a new port being developed (AMEP - southern red boundary zone on above image) offering 325 ha (803 acres) of developable land and 1500m of new deep water quays, designed specifically for the offshore wind sector. AMEP offers extensive land availability for investors to optimise their plant layout and to expand in phases as and when required. Logistics savings will be maximised through the co-location of suppliers: Blades, Towers and potentially the manufacturers of Foundations (Monopiles, Jackets and GBS structures) as well as key sub suppliers e.g. convertors, gearboxes, generators, and nacelle canopies.

Able Logistics Park (ALP - see northern red boundary zone on above image) offers a further 270 ha (667 acres) of warehousing and external storage along with a purpose built Business Park providing office facilities for engineers, consultants, OEMs, supply chain companies, developers and associated businesses. AMEP will service the needs of the Renewable Energy Sector providing a base for manufacture, storage, assembly and deployment of next generation offshore wind turbines (OWTs) and their associated supply chain(s).
