It is now less than five months until the first wind turbine blades are manufactured by Siemens in Hull and the workers who will be taking up the hundreds of new posts there have now started their training in Denmark.
The turbine components they will produce will help make the Humber the centre of Britain's renewable energy industry, supplying the growing number of offshore wind farms in the North Sea. But their training will take several months and some have decided to move their entire family abroad for the duration including Magda Kay.
For five months Magda is living in Aalborg with her husband Nick while she trains at the Siemens plant there.
So many staff will be travelling out to Denmark to train over the coming months that a new route operated by Sun Air has been set up linking Humberside Airport with Aalborg.
While in Denmark the recruits are paired up with colleagues who are doing the same jobs they themselves will do when they return to Hull. The training lasts until August ready for when the Hull plant is due to open in September. It will provide turbine blades for the growing number of wind farms in the North Sea and cement the Humber's place as the centre of Britain's growing renewable energy sector.
