Specialist shipping, logistics and insurance law firm Myton Law has let a floor of its Hull office to Muehlhan Wind Service.
Riverside House on Hull’s Humber waterfront is Muehlhan Wind Service’s first office in the UK.
Muehlhan Wind Service opened the Hull office on 20 April. The Danish company has taken 127 square metres of space with a view to growing its team as business develops.
The company was established in 2017 by the German Muehlhan Group as a dedicated service provider to the offshore wind energy sector. It offers surface treatment, onshore pre-installation and assembly, offshore installation, and ongoing maintenance.
Welcoming Muehlhan Wind Service to Hull and to Riverside House, Myton Law director Scott Yates explained the background to the office let. He said: “Myton Law has an established relationship with Muehlhan having provided legal advice and assistance to another entity within the group and we learnt through another client, which provides safety equipment to Muehlhan Wind Service, that they were looking for a Hull base.”
“Our second floor was vacant. We were keen to let to a business with which we shared synergy so, as an existing client working in a sector in which we specialise, Muehlhan Wind Service are an ideal fit for us.”
Yates is also a board member of Hull’s Green Port Growth Programme and sees this as a coup for the city. He said: “Muehlhan Wind Service’s decision to make Hull its UK office base further enhances Hull’s position as a key centre for the UK, and indeed European, offshore wind industry. It’s good news for the city.”
Daniel Davidson, Muehlhan Wind Service’s site manager, is launching the Hull office. He commented: “With all the wind turbine developments along the East coast now is a good time to be here providing our services, which include expert access to blades for inspection, maintenance, repairs and upgrades.”
“Hull made sense, because of the growing wind energy business presence and we’re pleased to have found high quality office space in such a good location with the added attraction of great views over the Humber.”
