Green Port Hull takes crucial step

September 9 - Hull City Council's planning committee has given its consent to the proposed works at Alexandra Dock, Green Port Hull, following the submission of detailed plans by Associated British Ports (ABP) and Siemens in June of this year.

In March, Siemens and ABP announced a combined investment of GBP310 million (USD498.9 million) to develop pioneering new wind turbine production and installation facilities in Yorkshire. In June, detailed planning applications were submitted for works at Alexandra Dock to enable development of the nacelle pre-assembly, project construction and logistics and distribution facilities and offices.

The Council's approval will enable construction to commence later in the year at Alexandra Dock. Planning applications for works at the adjacent Paull blade site will be submitted later in 2014.

Councillor Steven Brady from Hull City Council said: "Today's decision marks a crucial step forward in our plans for establishing Hull as the UK's Energy Estuary. We are delighted with the plans presented by Siemens and ABP for the proposed wind turbine assembly and service facility at Alexandra Dock and we look forward to working with our partners on this key project.

"This will not only make a huge difference to the city's economy, but also help transform green energy and ensure that Hull is the market leader for the UK's offshore wind industry."
