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 install onshore wind turbines at the ports of Grimsby and Immingham.
The two Humber Ports will be the first onshore wind projects for consultation with a generation capacity potentially up to 36MW. Plans are being developed for up to four turbines at Grimsby (up to 24MW) and at least two at Immingham (up to 12MW).
The consultation will take place at Grimsby Town Hall (Crosland Suite), on Wednesday 19 April between 1.30pm and 7.30pm, and at Immingham Civic Centre (Burrton Hall) on Thursday 20 April between 11.30am and 7.30pm.
At these events 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.
