“Highly influential” Humber maritime and offshore wind group born from merger
As part of Bdaily’s courage of Green Energy Week, we look to Team Humber Marine Alliance and Grimsby Renewables’ partnership, as the two have officially merged at Offshore Wind Connections 2022.
The new company, Humber Marine and Renewables, was launched at the conference on April 28, cementing the two organisations’ partnership and bringing more than 200 member companies into a united organisation.
The intention to merge was announced last Autumn after it was agreed that combining membership and resources would lead to a greater brand presence and a single voice for the Humber region on the national and international stage, along with enhanced business opportunities.
Andrew Oliver, director at Humber Marine and Renewables, said that the merger was highly significant for the region and represented a new era for member companies. He said: “We now have one voice and one ambition, which is to bring more offshore wind and maritime business to the region and our membership.
“Both Grimsby Renewables Partnership and Team Humber Marine Alliance developed a reputation with global reach and had members spanning the length and breadth of the supply chain. Bringing the two organisations together creates an unrivalled bank of skills and experience.
“We are very proud to launch Humber Marine and Renewables and I feel hugely privileged to be part of this highly influential Humber maritime and offshore wind group.”
Katharine York, director, added: “Humber Marine and Renewables is the culmination of a huge amount of hard work and goodwill by the two former organisations. The key to their success was the energy and ambition of the private sector and their strategic collaboration with the public and education sectors who have provided invaluable support over the years.
“Humber Marine and Renewables will be a powerful alliance between the north and south banks, combining the operations and maintenance focus of Grimsby Renewables Partnership with the maritime knowledge of Team Humber Marine Alliance. It will be an advocate for the whole of the Humber.”
