Siemens prepares Hull site for turbine factory

A Hull dock is being prepared as the site of a proposed Siemens wind turbine manufacturing plant.

Civil and structural engineering company Alan Wood & Partners carried out a topographic survey of the site for the Green Port Hull scheme.

Energy giant Siemens has chosen the project, at the 74ha Associated British Ports’ (ABP) Alexandra Dock site in the city, as its preferred location for a factory to assemble turbines for offshore wind farms.

Alan Wood & Partners said it is one of the first companies to benefit from the region’s growing renewable energy industry.

Two engineers spent more than two weeks carrying out the topographic survey, which identifies the characteristics of a site before plans for a development are completed.

Alan Wood & Partners director Chris Medlin said: “The entire dock complex was surveyed at the request of ABP, who required the study to be done as part of their ongoing discussions with Siemens about the Green Port Hull project.”
