A UK maritime organisation is launching a Scarborough branch to represent the interests of North Yorkshire businesses

Team Humber Marine Alliance, which has its main office in Hull, works for growth in the regional maritime industry and is an influential player in the offshore wind revolution, galvanising the supply chain to diversify and serve the fast-growing sector.

It is opening an office at Butterworth Marine, a specialist maritime legal company, which has newly renovated premises at Belgrave Crescent, in Scarborough’s centre.

The not-for-profit membership organisation was formed 25 years ago, initially to improve marine engineering skills, quickly growing and helping companies collaborate to bid for large contracts. It is well known as the ‘voice’ of the maritime sector and over the last decade, it has had a key focus on winning business for members in the construction, operation and maintenance of North Sea wind farms.
