Able UK has welcomed comments from the Prime Minister, David Cameron, on its plans for the £450 Marine Energy Park on the Humber.

The Billingham-based company wants to develop state-of-the-art facilities there for the manufacture, assembly and installation of offshore renewable technologies. However, while the Planning Inspectorate recommended approval in February, the Government has delayed making a decision on the scheme.

In response to a question in the House of Commons, Mr Cameron described the park as a “very important investment” and suggested he would look into the issue.

“We all want to see the Humber estuary become a real magnet for investment,” he added.

Able UK Executive Chairman Peter Stephenson said the comments were “encouraging”
