United Kingdom to invest $132 million in offshore wind ports

The UK government plans to invest $132 million in developing two offshore wind ports. Of this, $104 million has been allocated for the Able Marine Energy Park on the south bank of the river Humber, while the remaining $27 million is slated for the Teesworks Offshore Manufacturing Centre, located on the river Tees. Upon commissioning, the ports will support the development of offshore wind projects up to a capacity of 9 GW annually. One of the manufacturers that has been confirmed as an investor in the Teesside port is GE Renewable Energy. GE plans to set up an offshore wind blade manufacturing factory at the site. The blade factory will supply the Dogger Bank wind farm, located off the northeast coast. The factory is expected to begin construction in 2023.
