Siemens invests in offshore wind

MTA member Siemens this week announced a very significant investment in offshore wind centred around Hull. The work will be spread across two sites comprising the previously announced Green Port Hull project construction, assembly and service facility and, crucially, a new rotor blade manufacturing facility in nearby Paull, in East Riding.
Siemens is investing £160 million across the two locations and its port partner Associated British Ports (ABP) is investing a further £150 million in the Green Port Hull development. The investment will provide a huge boost to the UK’s offshore wind industry and the Humber region. The combined investments of £310 million will create up to 1,000 jobs directly, with additional jobs during construction and indirectly in the supply chain.
