View of Hadrian Yard from the station
View of Hadrian Yard from the station
Looking south from the footbridge over the Metro at Hadrian Road Station to the offshore fabrication yard. This is a former shipyard which has had a succession of owners since the 1980's. Currently, it is being run by the Belgian steel firm Smulders. They took over in 2016 to fabricate the support structures (known as jackets) for offshore wind turbines. The ones which can be seen here are for the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm in Scotland. On the right can be seen the two gantry cranes and a large static jib crane used in the construction work.
