Siemens to open UK wind turbine factory in 2014

Siemens has submitted a planning application to build a wind turbine factory in Hull, in the UK.

The factory, to be opened in 2014, would create a potential 700 jobs, the company said.

Wind energy in Britain already employs more than 10,000 people full time, and lobby group RenewablesUK expects that to rise to 90,000 over the next 10 years.

"We are very pleased that another significant milestone in the project has been achieved, and we look forward to discussing plans further with the local community during the consultation process," said Siemens project manager Dan McGrail.
