Engineering giant Siemens has confirmed it will build a major new wind turbine factory in Hull, three years after the plans were first announced.
The company said it would invest £160m in Green Port Hull at the city's Alexandra Dock and in a new blade factory in Paull, East Yorkshire.
Up to 1,000 jobs will be created at the two sites making offshore turbines.
