RenewableUK is highlighting the importance of the Queen’s visit this morning to Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy’s offshore wind turbine blade factory in Hull, which began operating last September.

More than 200 offshore wind turbine blades, each 75 meters long, have already been manufactured at Alexandra Dock in Hull, where the company employs more than 700 people.

RenewableUK’s Chief Executive Hugh McNeal; said:

The Queen’s visit sends a powerful signal of just how far the UK’s offshore wind industry has come, and that it is a key part of the energy mainstream.

The apprentices who welcomed Her Majesty to Siemens Gamesa’s state-of-the-art factory in Hull are great examples of the tens of thousands of British people now working in our world-leading sector, including its flourishing supply chain.

“During her reign, the Queen has seen some of the most profound changes in our nation’s history, and our awareness of the importance of taking practical action to protect our environment by switching to renewable energy is a prime example of this”.

In the Queen’s lifetime, the UK’s power sources have changed significantly, from 97% coal in the year of her birth to over 50% of our power being generated by low-carbon sources in 2016.
