When: 5 June 2017, 17:30 for 18:00 - 20:00Where: Siemens Wind Power Limited, Sir William Siemens Way, Alexandra Dock, Kingston upon Hull, HU9 1TA -DirectionsMeeting Point: Reception
Speaker: Barry Denness - Head of Port Operations, Siemens Hull
Siemens has invested £160 million in a new wind turbine blade manufacturing facility, project construction, assembly and service facility at Green Port Hull in Yorkshire. The 1,000 strong manufacturing and assembly facility in Hull is now operational. The first batch of 75-metre blades emerged from the plant, part of a vast “green port” built by Siemens and partners at docks that used to export Yorkshire coal. One of the blades took pride of place in the centre of Hull, as part of City of Culture 2017.
The investment by Siemens is considered a huge boost for a port area that had declined into a wasteland and a city with one of the UK’s highest unemployment rates. It also comes at a time when Hull has been named city of culture 2017.
This is a great opportunity to see the 'port operations' side of the facility and how the blades are handled ex-factory to the ships, where they are taken offshore for installation at the wind farms. This will 'not' include a tour of the blade factory itself, only portside facilities.
Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
