It is hoped that this will be the start of further major investment at the site that is the UK’s largest enterprise zone and the capital for renewable energy.

Able UK has worked closely with North Lincolnshire Council to get the Able Marine Development Park and Logistics Park up and running. Together, this represents a £550m investment that will create a total of around 10,000 jobs – BMW being part of this.

“BMW has committed to creating 100 new jobs – this will act as a catalyst in attracting other large businesses to the site.

“This is just one part of the overall development to create Europe’s largest offshore wind park.

“North Lincolnshire provides a great location to do business, with excellent road, sea, rail and air links with its own Airport.

“We are committed to providing better paid jobs and doing all we can to attract more businesses to the area. This latest development will benefit not just North Lincolnshire and Humber region, but further afield. This is excellent news.”
