Energy giant Centrica is to invest £63 million in a power station which will secure the site's future up to 2027.
The gas-fired South Humber station, which has been part-mothballed since earlier this year, will return to full service in 2017.
The power station, which was built in two phases from 1994, is capable of producing enough electricity to meet the needs of over one million homes -nearly half the homes in Yorkshire and the Humber.
In its strategic review in July, Centrica said it would invest to maintain and improve its gas-fired generation fleet where economics allowed.
Thousands of people turned out to watch the powerboat racing in Hull over the weekend known as the 'Grand prix of the sea'.
The two day event was the fifth of its kind - featuring local racers on the River Humber.
Recruitment for students to the North Lincolnshire's first University Technical College, which will specialise in engineering and renewables, takes place this morning at The Stem Centre, North Lindsey College.
The event, between 9.30am and midday is aimed at young people and parents.
There will be a chance to meet specialists in engineering or renewables, plus education experts from SMartWind, BAE Systems, The Institute of Engineering, University of Hull and North Lindsey College as well as take part in activities.
Work is well underway to build the new £9.5m UTC which opens in September 2015 and will offer students a unique opportunity to learn key skills, alongside English, maths and science.
The UTC will provide 600 student places and has already recruited around 60 Year 10 and 60 Year 12 students through online applications and previous recruitment events.
Fifteen students each year will be offered the chance of a lifetime to be taken on as apprentices at the new £5m BAE Systems Training Academy at Humberside Airport and will learn how to service and maintain UK fighter jets and support international export contracts.
Once qualified, they will become part of the BAE Systems team, working alongside the RAF.
The government-funded UTC for 14 to 19 year olds is being built in the heart of Scunthorpe Town Centre.
Four thousand jobs have been secured on the south bank of the Humber, following a long running dispute between two companies over a piece of land.
Able UK and Associated British Ports have been locked in disagreement over whether a huge site building wind turbines should be built, or whether a deep sea jetty aimed at attracting bigger ships should get the go ahead instead. Kate Hemingway reports.
An MP from East Yorkshire has warned that failure to invest in better flood defences could cost the region billions of pounds.
David Davis said the Humber is a national strategic asset which needs protection and failing to do so could lead to flooding on a bigger scale than last December, as Fiona Dwyer reports.
MPs and councillors from across the political parties attended a debate in Parliament today, to advance the case for improving the Humber’s flood defences.
They say the £32 billion of potential damage, disruption and loss of investment at risk dwarfs the £888 million needed to implement the Environment Agency’s strategy and build up defences. The group will also be meeting with the Prime Minister next week.
Environment Agency officials are meeting community leaders and conservationists to discuss the impact of December's record tidal surge on future flood work in the Humber.
Drainage boards, six local authorities and Natural England will be among the organisations meeting in Grimsby today to discuss the flood and what it means for future flood risk management around the Humber.
Humber strategy manager Philip Winn said:
"We gathered an enormous amount of data about how the flooding impacted on the Humber estuary following the tidal surge. We are using this information to run new computer models and this will give us a better understanding of how different locations may be affected in different scenarios."
The tidal surge was the highest ever recorded tide level in the estuary and led to around 1,100 properties and hundreds of businesses flooding in the area.
Among work by the agency since the flooding, a section of Weeton Bank at Welwick has been reinstated where the surge eroded the bank, and repairs are being undertaken at Reedness, Old Goole, and Blacktoft.
Extensive repairs have also taken place on the south bank where £2 million has been spent to complete initial works, including the loading of 13,000 tonnes of clay, along 12 miles of flood defences.
In addition to the recovery operation, work is also underway on a £20m scheme to help reduce tidal flood risk to more than 14,000 properties in Grimsby and Cleethorpes.
Fiona Dwyer has more on go-ahead for a huge renewable energy project on the South bank of the Humber. The company responsible, Able UK, say it will create thousands of jobs. The £450 million project will be built close to North Killingholme in North Lincolnshire.
A Department for Transport spokesperson has released a statement about the delay in approving the £450 million marine energy park in North Lincolnshire.
They were concerned over the habitat of the local wildlife, which they say has now been satisfied.
