Humber Gateway offshore windfarm given the go-ahead

Humber Gateway, a proposed £300-million offshore windfarm located just a few miles off Spurn Point, has been given the go-ahead by the Government.

Energy company E.ON has been granted permission to build the 77-turbine wind farm, which will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of 150,000 homes.

Chris Huhne, Energy and Climate Change Secretary, said: “Offshore wind not only provides clean, green, secure energy, the investment that comes with it is great for the UK economy too.

“A new wind farm off the Humberside coast will be a further jobs and investment boost for the region, hot on the heels of Siemens’ announcement of plans to develop the Port of Hull.”

The wind farm is the first to be given consent since December 2008 and is likely to be a major boost for Grimsby too, when it comes to operations and maintenance and getting crews out there, as the nearest port.

Full story in Thursday’s Grimsby Telegraph.
