Humber Enterprise Zone

The UK’s Energy Estuary, home to a world class offshore wind hub and the UK’s busiest port by tonnage.


UK’s largest Enterprise Zone:

At 1,238ha (3,059 acres), the Humber has the largest Enterprise Zone in the country, comprising a package of 30 sites located in the heart of the UK’s ‘Energy Estuary’ to suit the needs of a wide range of businesses.

The Humber Enterprise Zone offers:

Space for offshore wind Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their supply chains to co-locate to make cost reductions on a major scale at Able Marine Energy Park and Green Port Hull. 80% of all North Sea offshore wind farms and 60% of the entire European market for renewable energy is within 12 hours reach of the Humber.

The UK’s largest development sites available adjacent to deep water port at Able Marine Energy Park and Paull.

Sites at the Port of Grimsby, a rapidly growing Operations and Maintenance centre for the offshore wind industry.

Space at Humberside Airport, the UK’s second busiest heliport, serving the offshore wind, oil and gas industries.

Prime sites for logistics, food and advanced manufacturing on uncongested transport routes, offering excellent connections to the ports of Grimsby and Immingham, the UK’s busiest port by cargo tonnage, and Goole, the UK’s furthest inland port.

Affordable city centre sites in the vibrant City of Hull, UK City of Culture for 2017.

Transforming the local economy:

Siemens are building two factories on the Humber Enterprise Zone. Together with Associated British Ports they are investing £310 million and creating 1,000 direct jobs in Hull (with at least 300 temporary jobs during construction). The £450m Able Marine Energy Park (AMEP) near Grimsby will provide a facility for the manufacture, storage, assembly and deployment of the next generation of offshore wind turbines, creating 4100 jobs when complete.
