Humber Gateway Enters Second Half of Turbine Installation
E.ON’s Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm is making progress with 37 of 73 turbines already installed.
E.ON UK Chief Executive, Tony Cocker confirmed this in a press release accompanying its interim financial results.
First wind turbines at the project’s site were installed at the end of July, and a few days later the wind farm’s Operations and Maintenance base was opened in Grimsby. The GBP 700 million wind farm, located 8km off the Holderness coast, East Riding of Yorkshire, is scheduled to be completed next year.
Mr Cocker added that Humber Gateway has created a number of job opportunities and business for locally based companies during the construction process.
