UK’s Port of Blyth will soon be welcoming another new client to its offshore energy hub once a brand new £0.7m facility at its South Harbour terminal for fabricating specialists Texo CFS is completed.

As the UK’s offshore energy support base, the Port has developed a cluster of complementary businesses servicing the offshore energy sector, with Texo CFS set to further its growth by securing the purpose built facility in Blyth, the port said on Wednesday.

Martin Lawlor, Chief Executive at Port of Blyth, said: “Texo Group has huge ambitions and capability in the offshore energy and subsea sectors and we’re delighted that Texo CFS, Texo Group’s dedicated fabrication business unit in the North East, has selected Port of Blyth as the location for its brand new facility.”

The 1200sqm facility, which will support the production of fabricated solutions, is to include two 20 tonne overhead cranes with hook height of up to 11m and a 1250sqm yard area containing an office space and car parking provision.

Texo Group is an inspection, engineering, procurement and construction (iEPC) specialist for multiple sectors, including: oil & gas, clean energy & renewables, marine, nuclear, telecommunications, utilities and critical civil/infrastructure.

Andrew Robson, Managing Director, Texo CFS, said: “We are delighted to have signed an agreement for this fabulous new facility at the Port of Blyth. This new facility will be the cornerstone of our Group-wide strategy in the North East, bringing world class projects to the area.”

Once the facility is open, Texo CFS will join numerous offshore and subsea businesses in calling Port of Blyth’s South Harbour home including DeepOcean, Royal IHC and Osbit.

In related news, Texo recently won a contract to upgrade the 1986-built Ensco 100 jack-up drilling rig. This was the first contract win for its MODU business unit.
