MPI Selects Teesport Commerce Park as UK Base
MPI Offshore will use Teesport Commerce Park in Middlesbrough to use as its UK base over the next six years.
The lease agreement, signed with PD Ports, will see MPI Offshore establish a base for its fleet of installation vessels, which include the MPI Adventure, Resolution, Discovery and Enterprise.
Peter Robinson, MPI’s Managing Director, commented: “Establishing a permanent base at PD Ports facility provides us with 54,000 sq ft of warehousing. It has been acquired as part of our strategic business development and will strengthen the case to establish the Tees as an offshore renewables base. Along with this commitment we can look forward to developing further links we have with local suppliers who have supported MPI’s growth to date.”
Jerry Hopkinson, PD Ports’ Managing Director Bulks and Ports, commented: “Offshore expertise is second to none in the Tees Valley region and this expertise is being used to drive expansion in the UK offshore and wind power sector.
“By anchoring a base at Teesport Commerce Park we are confident this will be a catalyst for further growth and investment in the near future.”
