Alex responds to Teesside wind turbine announcement

Responding to the announcement that LM Wind Power will open a new wind turbine manufacturing plant in Teesside, Stockton North MP Alex Cunningham said:

“This is great news for Teesside. I’ve long championed our area as a potential home for the clean energy industries such as wind power, and I’m delighted that Teesside has been chosen as a home for wind turbine manufacture. I hope this acts as a catalyst for further growth in the green and clean energy sector in the Tees Valley.

“The pandemic has destabilized the economy and left thousands across Teesside unemployed. It is vitally important that good quality, well-paid jobs are created to replace those lost and I wholeheartedly welcome the jobs and training opportunities this project will bring to our area. I hope local people – especially younger people – will benefit from these opportunities, and would welcome further discussions about this.”
