Able Humber Port

Humber Freeport - Able Humber Port

Able Humber Port (AHP) is located on the south bank of the river Humber and provides 285 hectares of land plus an additional 43.7 hectares of new quayside when developed. 178 hectares of this land is designated as a Freeport Tax Site.

AHP aims to become a leading offshore wind port in Europe, serving as a hub for renewable energy developments. AHP has the capacity to deliver c.2GW of offshore wind per year when complete thereby maximising UK content.

Able Humber Park – Visualisation

The adjacent Able Energy Park (AEP) spans 491 hectares, providing 342 hectares for renewable energy production and storage. Both sites are ready for development, with excellent road and railway access, and are protected against flooding through modern infrastructure.

Located near key energy hubs and refineries, AHP and AEP are positioned to support the growth of renewables and decarbonisation developments in the area. They are also served by proposed carbon capture and storage schemes, further promoting decarbonisation and renewables projects.

How do existing local
businesses benefit?

We will know more about this as details emerge. However, it is the intention to incentive new investors to the area to use local suppliers, to boost existing businesses across the Humber. Businesses will also benefit from the general uplift in economic activity in the area catalysed by the freeport.

How can my land be added
as a tax site or customs site?

It is our ambition that if Humber Freeport is successful it will grow over time. However, it will take Government approval to add new sites. We hope new Government guidance on this will be made available in the future to help guide how sites can be expanded.
