Siemens to Decide on Hull, UK, Wind Turbine Factory

Hull Daily Mail
Monday, July 16, 2012

A final decision by Siemens on its proposed new wind turbine factory in Hull, North-east England, is expected by the end of the year

Planning consent for the ambitious £210-million redevelopment of Alexandra Dock where the factory will be based was granted in May.

Already huge jack-up cranes are now regularly shipping turbine components from a riverside quay off Albert Dock to offshore wind farm sites off the Norfolk coast.
Work has also already started on re-equipping a shipyard in Paull, where a new fleet of support vessels for the offshore wind industry will be built, reports the 'Hull Daily Mail'.

Mark Jones, Hull City Council's head of economic development and regeneration said: "There is a revival of shipbuilding and marine engineering on the estuary.

Alexandra Dock is set to be transformed under Green Port Hull plans. Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman is scheduled to sign off habitat regulations shortly, approving the reclamation of land from the Humber estuary to create a riverside quay where wind turbine components will be shipped from.

Mr Jones added: "A number of other planning conditions still need to be discharged but discussions are continuing predicated on confirmation of the final investment decision by Siemens towards the end of the year."
