Plans submitted for £210million Hull wind turbine plant
Siemens has submitted a series of planning applications for a £210million wind turbine factory in Hull that is set to create 700 jobs when it opens in 2014.

The German engineering firm and Associated British Ports (ABP) put forward the development plans at a meeting with Hull City Council on Tuesday.

If successful, construction will begin at the Green Port Hull development at Alexandra Dock as early as next summer.

Dan McGrail, Siemens project manager said: "We are very pleased that another significant milestone in the project has been achieved, and we look forward to discussing plans further with the local community during the consultation process. Both Siemens and ABP would like to thank Hull City Council and the local community for helping us reach today's milestone and for their support."

Matt Jukes, ABP ports director for Hull & Goole, added: "Developing Green Port Hull for Siemens represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for both the Port of Hull and our city to take the leading role in the UK's green energy revolution.

"Our teams have put in a huge amount of work on the project over the last 12 months and I am exceedingly pleased that we're now in a position to submit these applications which will see the complete transformation of Alexandra Dock, firmly position Hull as a centre of excellence for renewable energy, and generate unparalleled opportunities for the city and region."
