Commenting on today’s announcement by Dogger Bank Wind Farm of the creation of
hundreds of offshore wind jobs at ABLE Seaton Port in Hartlepool and in the
Port of Tyne, RenewableUK's Deputy Chief
Executive Melanie Onn said:
"Coastal communities in Hartlepool and Port of Tyne are
set to reap massive economic benefits with hundreds of new jobs on offer at a
time when we need them most, as the world's biggest offshore wind farm is built
in UK waters, demonstrating innovative
technology with these powerful turbines.
Job creation is a key part of the UK's offshore wind success
story, with clusters of companies setting up for business in ports all around
the UK. Dogger Bank and its Tier One suppliers’ "Meet the
Buyer" events will ensure that more UK companies take advantage of the opportunities
for firms at the cutting edge of renewable energy technology to capitalise on
our global lead in offshore wind".
