Mission to uncover new opportunities for region
A FACT-finding trade mission to northern Germany could reveal a host of unique opportunities for businesses in our region.
Team Humber Marine Alliance in co-operation with UK Trade & Investment, the World Trade Centre Hull and Humber and Grimsby Renewable Partnership, is planning the visit to northern Germany in April.
The mission will include tours of ports and man- ufacturing facilities in the Bremerhaven, Cuxhaven and Hamburg areas, which are home to a number of energy giants including Areva Wind, Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe and E.ON.
According to the organisers of the mission, the German offshore wind market is set to grow from a current 200MW to 25,000MW in 2030, with forecasts of installed offshore output of between 7,000MW and 12,000MW by 2020, providing an ideal opportunity for business leaders in East Yorkshire.

Mark O'Reilly, director and chairman of Team Humber Marine Alliance, said northern Germany is an ideal location to visit for businesses in the Humber.
He said: "These businesses are where, in the Humber, we hope to be in a few years. For us, it is a fact-finding mission to learn from them."
While in northern Germany, the businesses will have the opportunity to network with other trade organisations involved in the offshore wind industry.
Rob Penrose, of Andrew Jackson, one of the founding partner organisations of the World Trade Centre Hull and Humber said Britain is now the largest trading partner Germany has.
He said: "Northern Germany is of particular economic significance for the Humber, which is becoming Europe's energy estuary.
"Many companies involved in the provision of equipment for the offshore renewable industry have connections with Germany.
"The supply chain will need companies of all sizes and disciplines and this is an opportunity to find out more about the opportunities and the potential in northern Germany."
