June 3 (Renewables Now) - British industrial services company Able UK has submitted scoping plans for the construction of an offshore wind turbine assembly facility on South Bank in Redcar, North Yorkshire, England.

The planned 72-hectare site will assemble turbines for the North-East coast, with the finished units being transported via ships on the River Tees, the Northern Echo reports. The project envisages building a quay near the site and erecting a number of cranes.

Prism Planning Ltd will manage the project on behalf of Able UK, according to an announcement from last month.

Able UK, which is a specialist in demolition and decommissioning and is also engaged in the installation of offshore wind farms, anticipates to file an official planning application later this year, should the scoping plans prove successful.
