Myton LawMuehlhan Wind Service has opened its first UK office in the Riverside House on Hull’s Humber waterfront, which is also the HQ of Myton Law.

The Danish company was established in 2017 by the German Muehlhan Group as a service provider to the offshore wind energy sector offering surface treatment, onshore pre-installation and assembly and offshore installation and ongoing maintenance, drawing on decades of group experience of providing industrial services to other industries worldwide.

Welcoming Muehlhan Wind Services 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 are an ideal fit for us.”

Scott Yates is also a board member of Hull’s Green Port Growth Programme and sees this as a coup for Hull, “Muehlhan’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 Services’ site manager, is launching the Hull office.  He said, “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.”
