Wind

The Wind industry is classed as advanced engineering and in the Humber region this contributes around 25,000 jobs to the local economy. With the investment of Siemens and other wind energy companies in the Humber region, the number of jobs in the sector will increase over the coming years.

The Humber is home to the UK's largest port-side development sites, all encompassed by the Enterprise Zone. It offers wind turbine manufacturers and their supply chain sectors, the opportunity to maximize maintenance and cost reductions on a major scale.

Since the Humber provides cheapest and closest access to all three of the UK's largest Round 3 offshore wind farms under development, it offers a fantastic opportunity for investors due to the strong logistics, engineering and marine supply chains. Companies such as Centrica, RES and Siemens have established operations closest to the mouth of the Humber, in Grimsby, to service Rounds 1 and 2 offshore wind farms. E.ON and Dong Energy are amongst those who have made recent announcements to invest some of their operations in the Humber. Dogger Bank, the largest of the Round 3 offshore wind farms is approximately 3.5 times the size of East Yorkshire, and one of the biggest energy projects in the world.

To produce the wind turbines for these large project, Siemens with ABP have invested around £310 million to construct a wind turbine assembly plant at the port of Hull. This plant will manufacture the blades, assembly the turbine which will then be transported into the North Sea. Also due to the need for turbines just off the Yorkshire and Lincolnshire coast there are plans for ABLE UK to build a similar factory on the South Bank.

As well as becoming a location for manufacturing wind turbines, the Humber is becoming a location to service and maintain wind farms due to its close proximity to the North Sea. The port of Grimsby is especially becoming the location for the businesses that maintain and service the wind farms in the North Sea.
