A massive wind turbine factory in Hull could be set for major expansion after plans were lodged for new manufacturing and office space. The plans to double the size of the Siemens Gamesa plan have been described as a “game changer” by Hull City Council. Proposals submitted by the Spanish-German company would see its plan at Alexandra Dock extended from 36,000 sq m to 77,600 sq m. The new facility could see blades in excess of 100 metres being developed in Hull. Coun Daren Hale, Hull City Council’s portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said: “This is thrilling news for Hull and if this goes ahead it will help to further cement the city’s position at the forefront of the green economy revolution. “As we’ve seen in the past, investments like this have transformed the city and this latest plan could be a game-changer. It could be critical in supporting the recovery of Hull in a post-Covid economy at a time when so much is uncertain.
