THIS summer will see the completion of OrbisEnergy, the east of England's flagship building for renewable, wind, wave and tidal power.

Work on the state-of-the-art complex at Ness Point, Lowestoft, is due to finish by the end of July and plans are already well advanced for its operations and tenants.

Among the project partners are Renewables East and Norfolk and Waveney Enterprise Services (NWES) and both are in talks with numerous interested tenants.

Built over five storeys the building has fully managed office facilities for up to 37 tenanted companies.

The flexible arrangement of the offices means that as much or as little space can be taken. Moveable walls mean each office space can be configured as required.

Engineers, suppliers, service providers and private investors can use OrbisEnergy to help generate work, projects and contracts.

OrbisEnergy also has a conference centre which can seat more than 200 people.

The building was officially topped-out in January by EU Commissioner for Regional Policy Danuta Hubner.

It is hoped that when fully operational OrbisEnergy will help put Lowestoft as the UK's capital for the renewable power industry.
