The investment has been made as part of the enterprise zone capital grant fund from the Department for Communities and Local Government.
The money will go towards the first £29-million phase of construction, which will cover general infrastructure provisions. This is set to conclude in March 2015.
Plans to build the £450 million centre were approved by the government in December, when Austrian construction company Strabag also named the energy complex as its preferred site to build its gravity-based foundations for offshore wind.
It covers three square-kilometres on the Humber river's south bank and is intended to become a key port for the manufacture, assembly and deployment of offshore wind, serving the UK's Round 3 offshore projects.
Current nearby wind projects include Hornsea (4GW), Westernmost Rough (240MW) and Humber Gateway (219MW).
