Associated British Ports (ABP) has shared the latest drone footage of the enabling works on Alexandra Dock in Hull where Siemens is to build the UK’s first offshore wind turbine manufacturing, assembly, service and installation facility.
The 54-acre site, which ABP and its main contractor GRAHAM Lagan Construction Group Joint Venture (JV) are preparing for Siemens’ facility, is being transformed in Hull’s biggest engineering project since the port was built, according to ABP.
The enabling works undertaken by ABP and their contractors are worth GBP 150 million.
The GBP 310 million Greenport Hull Alexandra Dock, a joint investment by ABP and Siemens, is expected to create up to 1,000 jobs directly, with additional jobs during construction and indirectly in the supply chain. The blade factory is due to become fully operational in the first quarter of 2017.
