renowned for being a major hub for the renewable energy industry.“With the continuing support from Team Humber Marine Alliance and Green Port Hull we have been able to leverage our skills and innovations to become a leading service provider within
the wind turbine O&M industry.
“For us this is really only the beginning as we set up our training academy in Rhode Island to develop and grow the GEV brand even further in the USA whilst continuing to expand across European land mass.”
Mark O’Reilly, head judge and chairman and chief executive of Team Humber Marine Alliance, said: “We have seen over the years the projects are bigger and better than they were, and we can almost take it for granted that we have people working on a large scale wind
farm or major solar installation.
“It hasn’t always been that way, and we wouldn’t be talking about it a few years ago. Now, even in the small business category, we have companies working here and exporting knowledge abroad, which is great.”
The 2019 winners will be revealed at an awards night on Thursday, 13th June 2019.
