POWERING THE ENERGY ESTUARY


Team Humber Marine Alliance has grown into the Humber region’s foremost brand for marine, offshore and associated sectors and with its longstanding relationships with Northern Europe and strengthening links with the US, its sphere of influence is taking on a global hue.


REPRESENTATION


Representing more than 200 member companies and their 17,000 employees, it believes their expertise and experience should be rewarded with a healthy share of the action that North Sea wind power and other industries are bringing to the region. As the main base for the east coast


offshore wind industry, along with bioethanol production, oil refineries, biomass and natural gas imports, the Humber is at the heart of meeting the country’s energy needs.


CONFIDENT FUTURE


Despite Brexit uncertainty, the future looks bright for this great trading estuary. Planned North Sea wind investments valued at £20bn, Siemens’ turbine blade manufacturing facility in Hull becoming fully operational in 2017 and Dong Energy planning to open the world’s largest offshore wind maintenance hub in Grimsby provide new opportunities. Team Humber also works closely with maritime industries across the North Sea and is aligned to the EU’s Blue Growth Strategy that aims for sustainable growth from the seas.


STRENGTH IN NUMBERS


With its ‘Strength in numbers’ policy, Team Humber encourages collaborative bidding by member companies to bring major contracts to the region. Strongly backing the Northern Powerhouse, it has linked up with its west coast counterpart, Mersey Maritime, to promote the east- west trade corridor. Widening horizons, it is building links with the United States eastern seaboard where offshore wind is comparatively in its infancy.


Mark O’Reilly, CEO of THMA


A senior delegation from eastern states chose the Humber this September as the place to learn about developing the technology and infrastructure to meet their country’s renewable energy targets. They are keen on making business and academic connections with a view to reciprocal agreements and were impressed with the technology that is transforming the Humber region.


BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES


The US wind industry is in its infancy compared with the UK’s, but New Bedford, which remains a thriving fishing port, will be one if its major centres and presents an opportunity for Humber firms to be involved.
