[ December 15, 2011   //   ]

Associated British Ports (ABP) and Siemens announce are submitting joint applications to Hull City Council for the development of the Green Port Hull facility. They are for demolition of existing buildings at Alexandra Dock and the development of a factory, office and amenity facilities and a helicopter landing site, as well as areas for the storage, handling, assembly, and testing of wind turbine components. Siemens’ project manager Dan McGrail described the move as a ”significant milestone”.

ABP is also making a number of separate applications, which include marine and listed building consents to enable the new quay to be used for handling of wind turbines and associated traffic.
