ABPmer to prepare environmental statement for Green Port HullNews // March 15, 2011
ABP Marine Environmental Research Ltd (ABPmer) has been commissioned to prepare the marine elements of an environmental statement in support of Associated British Ports’ (ABP) proposed Green Port Hull development at Alexandra Dock, Port of Hull.
This follows the announcement in January that Siemens has selected Hull as the preferred location for a new offshore wind turbine manufacturing facility.
ABPmer will be working with URS/Scott Wilson to complete the full environmental statement for submission summer 2011.
Green Port Hull marks the start of delivering the Humber Green Economy Gateway Strategy. The port has an existing planning approval for the development of a 600m riverside berth at Alexandra Dock that, subject to consent for amendments, will be incorporated into ABP/Siemens development.
Green Port Hull is within an existing port complex and is directly adjacent to a natural deep water channel so is perfectly positioned for the receipt of raw materials, components, pre-assembly and dispatch of Siemens’ wind turbines out to sea.
