Green Port Hull is the UK’s world class centre for renewable energy, creating wealth and employment for the region.
By taking advantage of our Port’s prime location close to the offshore wind opportunities in the North Sea, Hull is perfectly placed to capitalise on the UK’s offshore wind industry and is playing a key role in achieving the Governments targets of net zero emissions by 2050, building on our strong foundations in clean growth.
This is why Siemens Gamesa chose Hull as the location to build its world-class offshore wind turbine blade manufacturing, assembly and servicing facilities.
The £500m ABP and Siemens Gamesa investment is the catalyst for the Green Port Hull vision as we work jointly to optimise the advantages of the offshore wind supply chain.
The Government has provided strong and consistent support to the sector and Siemens Gamesa, the leading supplier of offshore wind technology, is to double the size of its factory with a £186m investment, creating a further 200 jobs at the Hull factory.
As well as offshore wind there are major opportunities in hydrogen, carbon capture and storage and usage, biofuels, waste to energy, solar, wave and tidal power generation.
The renewable energy sector is the single biggest influence on the local economy for generations, creating thousands of new jobs along with a wealth of opportunity for local people and business.
