GE Renewable Energy has announced that it has received the official planning approval for its Teesside offshore wind blade manufacturing plant from the Local Planning Authorities.
The plant construction should begin later in 2021 upon the finalization of all contractual documents. LM Wind Power will operate the facility which will be dedicated to the production of its 107-meter-long offshore wind turbine blades for GE’s Haliade-X turbine. Recruitment for the plant is scheduled to begin in mid-2022, with an estimated 750 direct positions to be filled. An additional 1,500 indirect jobs would be created to support the entire supply chain around the factory.
