CHINESE DELEGATION


HARWICH The delegation visited Harwich International Port which will play a key role in the development of the East Anglian Energy Coast – the world’s second largest concentration of offshore wind farms.


They also visited London Gateway Port, Thurrock, to look at the opportunities that the deep-sea container port could offer. Once complete the port will be able to handle the biggest container ships in the world, as well as having one of Europe’s largest business and logistics parks


COMPANIES’ EXPERIENCE IN WIND ENERGY Both companies are from the Chinese province of Jiangsu, which is the focal point for the Chinese offshore wind energy industry. Essex has a long


standing partnership with the province.


HWE supplies high


quality wind power tower equipment to companies around the world including America, Spain and Denmark. JTPC is one of China’s leading optical fibre and cabling companies specalising in submarine cables.


Essex County Councillor, Kevin Bentley, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to be able to showcase the opportunities Essex has for investment from high profile influential international companies.


“It is also a further boost to our efforts to build the infrastructure and skills necessary to develop the East Anglian Energy Coast.


“Essex is ideally situated for accessing the rest of the country and Europe by road, air, sea and rail.


“This visit could lead to the creation of hundreds of jobs, both directly and indirectly, which will help boost the


county’s economy. It shows that Essex is very much open for business.”


Councillor Neil Stock, Leader of Tendring District Council said: “This is a great chance to show our visitors the fantastic opportunities there are in Tendring for investment in the renewable energy industries.”
