A Hull-based electrical supplier is hoping to capitalise on the growing offshore energy industry in East Yorkshire.

Pearson Electrical is one of 40 approved suppliers to the multi-million pound Green Port Hull project, which will see tech giant Siemens build an offshore wind turbine blade manufacturing, assembly and servicing facility.

Bosses expect the firm to grow by more than 30% following a £20,000 Business Loan from Finance Yorkshire.

The money will be used to fund the installation of a burn-off oven and winding machine for electric motors.

Green Port Hull aims to establish Hull and East Yorkshire as a world class centre for renewable energy – and Mark Pearson, Pearson Electrical’s Managing Director, describes it as terrific news for the regional supply chain.

He believes the company is well placed to capitalise on the emerging opportunities, with plans already in the pipeline to add an extra five workers to its 10-strong workforce over the next 12 months.

It recently acquired local rival Humber Rewind and relocated to a 6,000 sq ft factory at Pioneer Park.
