New Energy Park - East Halton


23 January 2014

A £450 million renewable energy project which could create 4,000 jobs in North Lincolnshire has been approved by the Government. Able Marine Energy Park, brought forward by Able UK, will include the construction of a 1,279-metre quay on land near East Halton. The £450million Marine Energy Park will provide state-of-the-art quayside facilities purpose-built for the manufacture, assembly and installation of offshore renewable technologies, at Able Humber Port – the largest site available for port-related developments in Europe. It will also include onshore facilities for the manufacture and transportation of wind turbines to sites in the North Sea. The development could require around one million tonnes of steel each year, which will be a massive boost to local steelworks Tata and presents a fantastic opportunity for the company to kick-start the economic recovery of steel – particularly for steel plate and long products.The news that Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has approved plans to create a world-class centre for the renewable energy industries on the south bank of the Humber has been described as ‘massively important for the region and the whole of the UK economy. The news that Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin has approved plans to create a world-class centre for the renewable energy industries on the south bank of the Humber has been described as ‘massively important for the region and the whole of the UK economy.’ Able Marine Energy Park (AMEP) is at the centre of the largest Enterprise Zone in the UK which covers both sides of the Humber and today Peter Stephenson predicted that, as well as attracting around 4,000 local jobs directly, it will be the catalyst for delivering the Humber-wide vision to create a cluster of renewable energy companies, both large and small.
