Maritime UK responds to the Government’s offshore wind announcement
Following the announcement from the prime minister

Following the announcement from the prime minister that offshore wind farms will generate enough electricity to power every home in the UK within a decade,Maritime UK South West welcomes the government’s announcement but wants it to go further: “We’ll need green propelled vessels to install and service the thousands of new offshore wind turbines” 

“The PM’s pledge to invest £160m to upgrade ports and factories for building turbines to power our homes is welcomed by the maritime sector. However, we’d like this Government to go further. The sector has been calling for £1bn of investment in the upcoming spending review to kickstart the green investment needed to decarbonise the maritime sector entirely. Without doing so, the UK cannot reach its net-zero commitments.
