Great Yarmouth company welcomes offshore announcement

The government has announced that it is to give more backing to offshore wind power after pledging to cut support for onshore wind and solar energy.

The Great Yarmouth firm CLS employs around 200 people, working in the oil and gas, wind energy and nuclear sectors.

Their Managing Director Scott McMillan says that it's good news for the company:

"Today's announcement is a real shot in the arm for us in the East.

This region's unique in that it works with all the different types of energy and it's this mix that will be vital in providing this country's future energy needs.

Anything that gives us more investment is obviously very welcome."

– Scott McMillan, Managing Director at CLS
