A ‘Green Port’ project worth over US$500 million has been approved for the Port of Hull, UK.

The project is being joint-funded by Siemens (US$260 million) and Associated British Ports (US$245 million).

The three-year construction programme involves the creation of a 600m-long quay on the River Humber, as well as dredging berths 62m wide and 11m deep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A secondary element to the reconstruction project will see existing buildings refurbished.

Siemens project director Finbarr Dowling said: “We are delighted that the plans for Alexandra Dock have been approved today by Hull City Council. These works represent an important step in the overall programme which will be progressed in coming months and years.”

Councillor Steven Brady from Hull City Council added that the project is a crucial step forward in establishing Hull as the UK’s Energy Estuary.

“We are delighted with the plans presented by Siemens and ABP for the proposed wind turbine assembly and service facility at Alexandra Dock and we look forward to working with our partners on this key project.”

“This will not only make a huge difference to the city’s economy, but also help transform green energy and ensure that Hull is the market leader for the UK’s offshore wind industry,” Brady concluded.
