What is Green Port

Green Port Hull has the potential to be the single biggest influence on Hull and the East Riding economy for generations, creating wealth and employment throughout the region.

Siemens has chosen Hull, specifically Alexandra Dock, as its preferred location to develop its new offshore wind turbine assembly and export facility.

Working collaboratively, Associated British Ports, Hull City and East Riding Councils' vision is to create a world-class renewable energy hub at Green Port Hull. By capitalising on Hull's locational advantage in close proximity to the major Round 3 wind farm zones, and with a portfolio of 500 hectares of deliverable development land around the port and its hinterland, all investor requirements can be catered for; from major manufacturing facilities, business parks, R D and O M developments servicing the renewable energy sector.

Green Port Hull will involve the regeneration of Alexandra Dock, an existing port complex that is directly adjacent to a natural deep-water channel. It is therefore perfectly positioned for the receipt of import cargo, component manufacture and the dispatch of the turbines for installation at the wind farms out at sea. This existing portside facility will ensure limited disruption, risk or cost often associated with onshore transportation. The development will comprise of a facility for the assembly of wind turbine equipment, together with component storage areas, offices and car parking, in addition, a new 600m riverside berth will be constructed for the export of wind turbine components.

The largest site at Paull totals 80 hectares and is ideal for the co-location of Tier 1   2 suppliers, a key driver of cost reduction. A secure transport corridor will allow the deployment component parts direct to the quayside. Most sites benefit from Enterprise Zone incentives, and through the Green Port Growth Programme, funding is available for employment   skills development and business support and R D.

Green Port Hull has created the perfect environment in which to attract renewable energy investors. It is hoped that many more complimentary businesses and supply chain operations will also move to the area on the back of Green Port Hull.
