A delegation from Yangjiang Offshore Wind visited the Humber region today. Hosted by Team Humber Marine Alliance the Chinese contingent spent the morning at ergo. During this time key deliverers collectively worked together to promote the Humber and showcase what has been achieved in the sector in the last 5 years to the international stage. Several local companies also attended, giving them the opportunity to network and establish links.

The coastal city of Yangjiang plan to have 68GW operational offshore wind capacity by 2035, and 10GW of that would be off the coast from Yangjiang.
