SUPPORTING MARKET OPPORTUNITIES AT GREEN PORT HULL


Green Port Hull has fast become the first choice as the renewables capital of the UK. Over £1billion of capital investment is currently underway in Hull, following the decision by Siemens to create a £310m offshore wind turbine blade manufacturing facility in the city.


Hull’s premium port capacity, infrastructure and unique skill set provide an excellent range of opportunities for companies from across the UK and beyond involved with manufacturing, pre- assembly and installation, as well as the wider supply chain.


This is because Hull and the East Riding is home to a broad range of businesses with renewable energy support capabilities, including engineering, fabrication, logistics, vessel operation, ship building, turbine maintenance, and port services.


A PROGRAMME OF SUPPORT FOR BUSINESSES


To access these opportunities, many companies both local, regional, national and international have utilised the support offered by Green Port Hull through the Green Port Growth Programme (GPGP). With an investment of over £25m,


the Green Port Growth Programme is supported by the Regional Growth Fund and is designed to capitalise on renewable opportunities. It develops indigenous business growth within the renewable sector, securing long-term economic growth for the region. The programme, developed by Hull City Council, East Riding Council and private sector partners, works two-fold. It helps businesses in the Hull and East Riding access supply chain opportunities, and also assists inward investors, such as Siemens, to identify suitable local

companies capable of supplying a range of products and services. This includes data collection on opportunities and improving relationships with developers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) through a dedicated supply chain coordinator. Another key tool is the Green Port Hull Supplier Directory, which provides information to the renewables industry on the region’s suppliers, products and services. To date, more than 360 companies have registered. Work has included helping local companies engage with key players in the renewable energy industry, such as Siemens, Energy Works, Dong, SSE and Clugston.


ASSISTING LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL BUSINESSES


DONG Energy approached the Green Port Growth Programme to help with a number of sourcing requirements for its Race Bank and Hornsea One windfarms. The company wanted marine services, provided by a firm based in the Humber region. With a strong knowledge of the market and providers on the Green Port Hull Supplier Directory, the Business Support Team put forward a small number of companies matching the requirement to DONG Energy.
