Wind turbine ports on the horizon
Construction on two UK wind turbine ports, on the Humber and Teeside, is set to begin in 2021.
The ports are part of a £95m Government investment expected to create 6,000 new jobs in the North.
Construction Enquirer reports that both ports, developed by Able UK, will have the capacity to house up to seven manufacturers to support development of offshore wind projects.
The first offshore wind manufacturer to invest in the Teesside port plan is GE Renewable Energy, which will build an offshore wind blade manufacturing factory at the site.
