Siemens Blade Manufacturing Facility — Green Port, Hull
invested in design and build of the offshore wind turbine production and installation facility.
Completed in early 2017, ABP worked with industrial giant, Siemens, on the design and build of a £310m offshore wind turbine production and installation facility on ABP’s Alexandra Dock site, which totals more than 100 acres.
The new complex includes a 39,600 sq m production unit for the manufacture of 75m turbine blades, office accommodation and welfare facilities, a 12,300 sq m building for on-going servicing and maintenance of wind turbines, and open and covered areas for the storage, assembly and testing of components. The first wind turbines produced by Siemens in their new facility in Hull were used at the Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm, off the Norfolk coast, to provide clean power to more than 410,000 UK households.
The project, which has created over 1,000 jobs, was financially supported by ABP who provided over half the development finance.
