The approval from the Hull City Council’s Planning Committee allows the company to develop the project on Alexandra Dock.

Siemens Hull project director Finbarr Dowling said: "We are delighted our revised proposals have been granted planning permission and the development of Alexandra Dock is now fully consented."

Siemens, along with its partner Associated British Ports (ABP), will invest £310m for the project, which includes a 39,600m² factory to manufacture 75m blades and the assembly, maintenance, storage and distribution of wind turbine components.

A 12,300m² building will be developed for service and maintenance.

In addition to creating 1000 jobs, the facilities will help the UK achieve its renewable energy generation targets and reduce wind power costs.

Meanwhile, Graham Lagan Construction Group joint venture has been selected by ABP to develop the Alexandra Dock site for the Siemens facilities.

Work on the Siemens’ facilities is planned to commence soon.
