A training facility in Hull is investing more than £1M in its facilities to help boost the region’s growing reputation in the offshore wind industry.
The Humberside Offshore Training Association (Hota) will be investing the money in its Malmo Road site.
The funds will provide the facility with new units and enable Hota to build a wind turbine at the site.
Hota general manager Linda Ellis said: “In collaboration with Total Access we aim to be the market leader for the provision of marine safety training and working at height and rescue training for the wind turbine sector.”
She added that as the Humber gains “more and more prominence” in the industry the company’s facilities in Hull and particularly in the Albert Dock will help them to “service the needs of the wind sector”.
She said: “The expansion is a vital step in equipping people who will be working in the renewable industry with the required training.”
