Siemens boss praises Hull "dream team" at business dinner
HULL'S role in the renewables revolution will help create "a whole new industry" which will be closely watched by the entire world.
Matthew Chinn, Siemens head of energy (UK and North West Europe) has spoken for the first time in Hull about the company's plans for the city, which will see Alexandra Dock transformed into a facility for the construction of huge offshore wind turbines.
He said: "There are a lot of people working very hard on a very interesting and exciting project.
"We are not building a restaurant. We are actually creating an industry."

Mr Chinn paid tribute to those working behind the scenes to make Green Port Hull a reality.
"I have done a lot of projects in my time," he said.
"I have been with Siemens 25 years and I have never worked with a dream team like this one, with the support of politicians like Alan Johnson, Hull City Council and ABP.
"It is an exciting project but it it is extremely complicated and it will take time."
Mr Chinn was speaking at the Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce dinner, which took place last night at the KC Stadium.
