Humber 'to become offshore wind super-cluster'

Humber 'to become offshore wind super-cluster'
The Humber region could become a major centre for the global offshore wind industry, experts have claimed, after the Humber Gateway wind farm was given the go-ahead.

Members of the industry, including representatives from Gamesa, Siemens and GE, expressed their confidence in the region's development at a conference held to promote opportunities to local firms, the Hull Daily Mail reported.

Andy Kinsella, executive director and offshore chief executive officer of Mainstream Renewable Power, said he expects to see an offshore wind "super-cluster" develop in the Humber region and the port of Hull.

He told the news provider: "This is the first time in probably 50 years Europe is ahead of the rest of the world in terms of technology. So, this cluster will become a worldwide export opportunity."

The Department of Energy and Climate Change confirmed last week E.ON has been granted permission to develop its Humber Gateway wind farm.

Once completed, an estimated 77 wind turbines will produce 230MW of energy, which is enough to power 150,000 homes. ADNFCR-1235-ID-800402517-ADNFCR
