Siemens Wind Energy To Create 1,000 Jobs In Hull

German manufacturing giant Siemens and partner Associated British Ports (ABP) are investing over £300 million in wind turbine facilities which will create up to 1,000 jobs in Hull.

Siemens, which had originally planned to spend only £80 million on the project, will now create wind energy facilities at two locations in the Yorkshire city - one at Green Port Hull and the other at Paull in East Riding - generating hundreds of jobs in the process.

In addition to the 1,000 Hull jobs that will be created in the green energy sector by the Siemens/ABP joint investment, there will also be further temporary jobs opened up by the construction of the wind turbines and installation facilities, along with further opportunities in the supply chain.

Commenting on the announcement, Ed Davey, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, said the Siemens deal was ‘excellent news’ - both for the people in the area and the wider wind energy sector in the UK too.

“As well as helping to keep the lights on and putting more than 1,000 people in work, this deal means we will help to keep consumer bills down as we invest in home-grown green energy and reduce our reliance on foreign imports. This deal shows our strategy for offshore wind is working; bringing investment, green jobs and growth, and helping keep Britain the number one country in the world for offshore wind,” said the Liberal Democrat MP.

Leader of Hull city council, Stephen Brady, also welcomed the news and pointed to other positive developments for the area:

“With the city of culture, the upgrade works for Castle Street and the A63, the recent announcement on the rail electrification from Selby to Hull and now this momentous news from Siemens today, Hull is really establishing itself as a place where great things are actually happening,” said Mr Brady.

Siemens already employs around 4,000 people in the UK in energy jobs, so the new positions created in Hull will swell their headcount in the sector by a massive 25 percent. The German company also provides UK jobs for around 10,000 more people in various other areas of its business.
