Russell Dickinson, Project Manager, said: “This was a complex scheme with a rapid build programme. This would not have been possible without the support of my onsite team who all played a vital role in the project’s success.”
Sarah Clark, Programme Manager at the University of Hull, said: “As the global economy shifts towards a low-carbon future, the green energy transition opens up a myriad of challenges and opportunities for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
“More than 200 dynamic, high growth businesses have already engaged with the Aura Innovation Centre to find out how the University of Hull and Aura can help them accelerate their sustainable innovation projects.
“Four funded projects are currently live and are being delivered with colleagues across the University of Hull, with over 30 more in the pipeline before the centre has even opened.
“The AIC is another example of how Aura and the University are delivering on the UK Government’s Sector Deal in Offshore Wind.”
