Offshore WIND’s photo of the day: Siemens’ presentation on how offshore wind measures up.
In March, Siemens announced that it will invest £160 million (EUR190m) in wind turbine production and installation facilities in Yorkshire. The revised plan will be spread across two sites comprising the previously announced Green Port Hull project construction, assembly and service facility and a new rotor blade manufacturing facility in nearby Paull, in East Riding. Its port partner Associated British Ports (ABP) is investing a further £150 million in the Green Port Hull development. The investments of £310 million will create up to 1,000 jobs directly, with additional jobs during construction and indirectly in the supply chain.
