Most recently, announcing plans together with ABP, to construct, operate and maintain a new green energy terminal at the Port of Immingham to produce green hydrogen. If plans go ahead, the green hydrogen facility alone will bring 1,400 direct jobs to the area and would deliver up to £4.6 billion in financial benefit to the region.
