German offshore wind trade mission fosters Humber ties

Leading German and Humber offshore wind and ports business leaders will meet at the University of Hull tomorrow, (Thurs, Nov 19) as part of a high profile inward trade mission.

Daniela Behrens, Lower Saxony’s Secretary of State for Economy, Labour and Transport, heads the trade delegation organised by Team Humber Marine Alliance.

CEOs and directors from more than 20 German businesses and organisations will attend a morning of networking, talks and presentations by leading Humber offshore wind and renewable energy figures at the University of Hull.

The trade mission, part of Offshore Wind Week, comes in the wake of news from Siemens of its plans to build a factory in the Lower Saxony port of Cuxhaven.

Mark O’Reilly, CEO of Team Humber Marine Alliance, said: “The Cuxhaven factory is a similar investment to Hull and was selected for the same key reason as Hull – a portside location with available space and in close proximity to North Sea offshore wind farms.

“Cuxhaven’s similarities and investment will have a comparable regenerative impact and this is a great opportunity to build relationships with a region that in many ways reflects our own.

“The Humber has excellent existing trade connections with the Lower Saxony region which sees daily shipments of vehicles, steel, specialist cargoes as well as RoRo ferry services between Grimsby, Immingham, Emden and Cuxhaven.

“The University of Hull is the perfect partner for this event as it makes a significant contribution in research and development and in the offshore wind and renewables supply chains.”
