Several initiatives have been funded that are benefitting local fishing businesses. These include the purchase of equipment for a fish retail unit, fishing vessel refit and engine replacement, an R.N.L.I. donation to the local station, purchasing equipment for rigging a fishing vessel for whelk fishing and the refurbishment of a fishing vessel hull and decking. Funds have also been provided towards the purchase of a tractor and trailer fitted with a hydraulic lifting arm. The latter is used to lift large bags of cockles caught in the region.
These projects were financed by Ørsted as a package of Single Business Agreed Donations in return for co-operation of the fishermen during the construction of the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind.
