The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has welcomed the news that Rt Hon Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, has approved Hornsea Project 2 – the world’s largest offshore windfarm.
LEP Chairman Lord Haskins said: “This is a massive construction project which will create a substantial number of jobs – both in construction and in operations and maintenance for the long term. With the world’s largest wind farm now approved on our doorstep, it is a further demonstration that the Humber, the UK’s energy estuary, is at the centre of this growing industry which has major potential.
“We were pleased to support the project through the planning process. The news of the development consent is welcome and we look forward to seeing it progress.”
