A £400m project to transform the south bank of the Humber, England, into an international centre for renewable energy industries, has been unveiled.

Able UK, a Hartlepool-based developer, said it has invested £50m ($75.1m) in the 1,987 acre site, which will be used for the construction and installation of wind turbines, and development of biomass energy.

It said around 5,000 turbines will be required to deliver the full capacity of the three offshore wind areas of Dogger Bank, Hornsea and Norfolk Bank.

A biomass power plant, which can supply electricity for half-a-million homes is also expected to be built along with the wind turbine operations, according to bbc.co.uk.

The company said it will submit a planning application for the project next year for consideration by the Infrastructure Planning Commission.
