Wind turbine factories in the UK will create thousands of jobs

Following up on a tweet last week, I came across this story in The Independent about an £80 million investment in building a new wind turbine manufacturing plant creating 700 jobs.

Whilst the site has yet to be confirmed by the German company Siemens, another company - General Electric (American) announced it too was investing £100 million in the UK with the prospect of creating 2,000 jobs.

The Independent goes on to say that the announcement by Siemens follows "months of talks and meetings at Downing Street, and followed changes in the Budget which announced grants for ports to build green manufacturing hubs."

Read the full article here. Good news indeed.
