In recent years, over £650m has been invested in the Humber region through renewable energy projects.
Orsted is investing £6b in Hornsea Two, the world’s largest offshore wind farm, and has built its East Coast Hub operations and maintenance facility at Grimsby.
Green Port Hull has attracted Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their associated tier 1 and 2 supply chain companies to invest in the area and has built a local network of businesses to support them. From site selection and planning, to funding and skills, we have helped over 200 companies put down roots in the region.
The Siemens Gamesa blade factory was completed on time and to budget, and they recruited their 1,000-strong work force from the local area. With a pipeline of £9.4b in orders, Siemens Gamesa continues to invest a further £186m by doubling the size of its factory in Hull.
The region now provides clean, green electricity to over 2 million UK homes, with 502 offshore wind turbines installed and a work force growing to 10,500 by 2026.
