Offshore wind ports hub

The UK is a leading nation in the deployment of the offshore wind and currently has the largest offshore wind assets in the world. The UK offshore wind workforce is predicted to double, from 15,000 employees in 2021, to a predicted 27,000 by 2030, with turnover from wind energy generating c£6 billion in 2019.

The Humber presents a unique investment offer in its ability to test, develop and manufacture the necessary components and subcomponents with the large quayside needed to deploy the offshore wind farms in the North Sea and further afield.

The UK government has committed an investment of £95m for 2 new offshore wind ports to be constructed in the Humber region and Teesside, complementing the existing Greenport site at Hull. This will enable large manufacturers of blades, monopiles, wind turbines, cables, large installation vessels and other supply chain companies to co-locate at these sites. The region offers a wide range of testing facilities, ample physical space for investment and a committed offshore wind cluster which can support your company’s ambitious projects in addition the opportunities associated with the Humber Freeport.
