East Yorkshire lands 1bn Euro wind farm off coast: Dong Energy to use Siemens turbines at Westermost Rough
A one billion Euro wind farm off the East Yorkshire coast has been given the go ahead, with 35 turbines to come from energy giant Siemens.
Dong Energy has confirmed it will build the giant offshore wind farm Westermost Rough, 8km off the Yorkshire Coast in the North Sea, east of Hull.
The decision gives a further boost to the £210m Siemens factory and is the first part of a 300-machine framework deal by the Danish firm, although the locations of the remaining turbines has yet to be announced.
Councillor Martin Mancey, environment portfolio holder at Hull City Council, said: "This can only be good news. We want this part of the world to be seen as a renewables capital."
