  • Siemens in Hull - good news!

    Hull City council has finally given the go ahead to energy giants Siemens to invest in Hull

    About 800 jobs will be created at the new wind turbine factory.

    Hopefully, this will be a new chapter in Hulls heritage, as leaders in the renewable energy field- something which i think much more money should be invested in!

    wind, sun and sea.....Three things which will always provide us with power as long as the planet survives.
    I don't suffer from insanity.
    I enjoy every minute of it...

            I will believe in this project when I see the first turbine. Until then it is all pie in the sky.

                The heading to the thread is--Seimens in Hull--I repeat it is all pie in the sky.I remember 20 or 30 years ago Nissan were looking to build a factory in the north of England.Its coming to Hull said the Hull Daily Mail.The local politicians took up the cry--It is coming to Hull--.Everyone convinced themselves that Hull was getting the factory. Land was allocated, it was almost a done and dusted deal.Then Sunderland heard all about it and offered Nissan a better deal if they opened up in Sunderland.Outcome could be the same.Some other town could hijack the project and Seimens could go the same way as Nissans.I repeat it is all pie in the sky until the first turbine is built.

                  Jim ,I have always had a regard for Siemen's as a Factory
                  that produces real quality products . They started in this
                  Country about 150 years ago and have always employed
                  a lot of our men and women. The factories as such did
                  close down during the two wars and were run I believe
                  by such people as Osram , General Electric and Ruston
                  Hornsby and as we know they have come back each time.
                  I have faith in them extending their Facories here providing
                  we give them the necessary support as we should any
                  Factory or commercial business, after all I believe they
                  employ over 10000 people in all throughout the country .
                  When Nissan came here , correct me if I am wrong but
                  was it not a first time venture . I feel it is up to the
                  Government along with the Local Councils to sort
                  themselves out with the planning etc. to get this project
                  under way for all our sakes .

                          Wind Power / NHS

                          Not seen it in writing yet or on news but it sounds absolutely brilliant news , the best local news I think I have seen in years . Kind of overshadows my bit of bad news that Cameron has cut another 7000 odd nursing jobs - is there no end to it or is this yet another step to privatisation - incidentally does anyone think that privatisation is a good thing ?

                              Marvellous news for the city. At last something positive to happen in our often downtrodden town.
                              I hate to say it but well done David Cameron, although he's probably stealing all the glory from our own Alan Johnson, the main campaigner for the project and a superb politician (if such a thing exists).
                              10,000+ jobs plus all the spin-off work for contractors and suppliers too.
                              It's great news and I reckon Arco will benefit with a good contract or two!
