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".
