Humber to host US legislators
North American politicians to visit key offshore wind businesses
US politicians from north eastern states will visit key offshore wind businesses in the Humber region on 21 and 22 September.
The visit, organised by Team Humber Marine Alliance, will include a tour of the port of Hull, as well as meetings with Dong Energy and Eon.
Team Humber Marine Alliance chairman and chief executive Mark O'Reilly (pictured) said the visit is an opportunity for the supply chain to make valuable business connections with a view to reciprocal agreements.
The visit builds on memoranda of understanding signed between Team Humber and two offshore wind organisations in the US and follows the Northern Powerhouse Mission to the US earlier this year.
The US delegation will include: Patricia Haddad, speaker pro tempore of the Massachusetts House of Representatives; Bruce Williamson, Maine Public Utilities Commission; Michael Rodrigues, Massachusetts State Senate; Sally Jameson, Maryland House of Delegates; Tom Simchak, policy advisor, energy, British Embassy, Washington; Melissa Wooten, vice consul, prosperity and economic policy, British Consulate General, Chicago.
