The Humber ports could be home to onshore wind turbines
The public are being invited to attend a consultation as part of Associated British Ports (ABP) plans to construct onshore wind turbines at the Humber ports.
Plans are being developed for onshore wind turbines at the ports of Hull, Grimsby and Immingham to be used in our efforts to achieve net zero.
The consultations will take place at Preston Community Hall on Tuesday 19 September from 12.30pm to 6.30pm; the West Marsh Community Centre, Beeson Street, Grimsby on Wednesday 20 September between 1.30pm and 7pm, and at Immingham Civic Centre, Pelham Road, Immingham on Thursday 21 September between 12.30pm and 6.30pm. At this event people can view the proposed plans and talk to members of the project team.
ABP supports government ambitions to achieving net zero and recently launched its own £2 billion plan for Energy Transition growth and Net Zero 2040. Called Ready for Tomorrow it looks to meet the challenges and grasp the opportunities. ABP has already reduced its own CO2 emissions by over 35% since 2014 and invested over £55 million in sustainability measures, which includes the largest commercial rooftop solar array in the UK at the Port of Hull, electric vehicles and cranes across the group and a new fleet of more fuel-efficient pilot boats. The Port of Immingham recently trialled a Terberg hydrogen fuelled tractor in its container terminal.
