THE BURGEONING renewable energy sector in the region has been heralded as a “world leader” as the industry plays an increasing role in servicing some of the world’s largest wind farms. A significant milestone was reached yesterday towards the UK becoming a low carbon economy with the opening of a new wind farm capable of powering over half a million homes. Race Bank, which is off the North Norfolk coast will be operated out of Grimsby, as will at least four other huge projects in the pipeline, which will set new records as the world’s largest wind farms as they come on line. It will make the town “truly a world leader”, said Matthew Wright, MD of the UK arm of Danish energy giant Ørsted. Many of the blades on the 91 turbines were made across the river at Siemens Gamesa’s factory in Hull.
