Green energy exploratorium plan for Grimsby to be presented to the public

The public are to be given an early insight into plans to promote inspirational career opportunities on Grimsby’s doorstep.

A proposed Low Carbon & Renewables Exploratorium was revealed earlier this month, having been worked up to pre-planning stage by a consortium headed by project director Richard Askam. He will now deliver a talk ‘under the Earth’ - at the Gaia installation by Luke Gerram currently exhibiting in Grimsby Minster.

The box park proposal for Garth Lane would see the offshore wind and allied industries hidden behind port gates and processing operations opened up in full gaze of the town and visitors, underlining the role the Humber is set to play in helping the UK reach Net Zero, benefiting the planet that is the subject of the sculpture, using 120dpi detailed NASA imagery.

The exploratorium will offer immersive, hands-on experiences, with wider plans for watersports and evening entertainment in a phased approach.

A key focus will be the next generation, those who could chase high skilled careers in the sector, set to grow exponentially in the coming years. With an established world-leading presence in offshore wind, green hydrogen and carbon capture technology is following, aiding the cluster of traditional industries in the area.

Mr Askam will speak on Wednesday, December 7, at 9.30am, with free tickets available via the Eventbrite platform.
