Plans for Wind Farm port on the Humber

The banks of the Humber could soon be home to a massive site which would construct and provide quayside facilities for their installation in planned massive wind farms off the shores of the UK.

A separate bio-mass energy station is also planned which would provide energy to the site as well as to over half a million homes throughout the area.

Obviously such a scheme would provide a massive 'green jobs' boost to the area - the BBC report quotes figures of 27,000 jobs in total.

Three offshore wind farms will require around 5000 wind turbines for completion.
