We Are Tyne Powered
The industrial revolution?
The world’s biggest offshore wind farm?
And the transition to a new, low-carbon world?
This will also be Tyne powered.
Together, the Tyne’s businesses are powering offshore and energy innovation.
Come and be a part of it – build your future on the Tyne.
The River Tyne in North East England has a 700-year track record in engineering with the power to change the world. Today, it’s where businesses like Equinor, Smulders and Siemens have chosen to bring their ideas to life.
The Tyne has the innovative minds and forward-thinkers to test, build and power new technologies. It has the skills, the commitment and the pure graft to be a driving force in building a new, zero carbon future.
“The region is absolutely stunning. People love it. Newcastle is an exciting city with genuinely brilliant and welcoming people. North to south and east to west connectivity is excellent, and the airport extends that accessibility with links to hundreds of places.”
MATT BEETON, CEO OF PORT OF TYNE
“The North East region benefits from a rich industrial heritage, and a multi-skilled workforce with many transferable skills relevant to the offshore wind industry.”
HALFDAN BRUSTAD, VICE PRESIDENT FOR DOGGER BANK, EQUINOR.
“We’re investing in our Tyne facility because we believe in this location. It’s been fantastic. We’ve been welcomed with open arms and the people here have been key to our success.”
TOM COOSEMANS, DIRECTOR, SMULDERS PROJECTS.
“It is a key strategic location for the energy industry including those sectors contributing hugely to the energy transition and zero 2050. This includes those that are part of North East England’s offshore wind cluster, Energi Coast, which is leading the way and bringing innovation and exceptional levels of quality and service to major renewable energy projects.”
JOANNE LENG MBE, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF NOF, THE UK BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT SPECIALISTS FOR THE ENERGY SECTOR.
The Tyne is close to three ports – the Ports of Tyne, Blyth and Sunderland – and is supported by excellent road, rail and Metro connectivity. It’s around 140km from the world’s largest offshore wind farm at Dogger Bank, and the Port of Tyne, which is implementing its vision to be the UK’s first smart port, is the closest deep sea port to both the Dogger Bank and Sofia wind farms. And Newcastle International Airport links the Tyne to yet more international markets.
