Wind-falls for the UK

The Government has welcomed Siemens plans to invest £80million in the UK for offshore wind production facilities, following the Government’s Budget announcement of £60m for a competition to develop manufacturing and assembly sites for the offshore wind industry.

Business Secretary Lord Mandelson said: "Siemens plans will provide hundreds of manufacturing jobs and many more in the supply chain - confirming the UK as a world leader in offshore wind."

Energy Secretary Ed Miliband added: "Siemens’ investment will help create jobs and help us meet our renewable energy targets."

Siemens is the latest offshore wind manufacturer to announce plans for investment in the UK. Clipper is to build the world’s biggest wind turbines, employing up to 500 people; Mitsubishi intends to invest up to £100 million in an offshore wind R&D facility, creating up to 200 jobs; and last week GE announced a €110 million investment which the company believe will create up to 1900 jobs.
