Businesses in Hull and the East Riding have been awarded contracts for the process ventilation, logistics, and process engineering support for the plant as well as supplying a range of vital equipment including cabins, equipment, PPE, office furniture, signs and radios for the site. In addition, the site accommodation, catering and security services needed have all been provided by local businesses. Another local company, C Spencer Ltd, is also responsible for the civil and structural works for this landmark facility.
M+W Group has also made use of the local labour market, with 85% of those working on site based in Hull and East Riding.

“Manufacturing and engineering contracts have now been agreed and we are working with the Green Port Growth Programme’s business support team and our Tier 1 suppliers to identify additional local supply chain opportunities. A skills and supply chain update event is planned on site for the early part of next year. For businesses that want more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
