Unrivalled in size, scale and opportunity, Teesworks is the UK’s largest and most well-connected industrial zone.
The site itself covers 4500 acres, with over £200million already committed to remediate and prepare land for development. At the heart of the site, Net Zero Teesside will be the UK’s first carbon capture utilisation and storage facility, capturing the same amount of energy annually as over three million homes. In line with national efforts and Teesworks’ clean energy commitment, the project is set to decarbonise the area’s carbon-intensive businesses by as early as 2030. There is also a keen emphasis on long-term thinking and a more sustainable future. Modern manufacturing combined with renewable activity and the clean energy sector will empower a resilient industrial cluster that is at the centre of a high value, low carbon circular economy.
Alongside Teesport and Redcar Bulk Terminal, an all-new 1km quay will be built at South Bank, specifically designed to focus on serving the offshore energy sector and will provide a gateway to global markets.
Crucially, Teesworks will create 20,000 new jobs and contribute £1billion a year to the wider Tees Valley economy; helping to deliver both the UK’s industrial and economic strategy, as well as the Northern Powerhouse Initiative.
From the place that helped to build the world, Teesworks is a diverse, multi-sector setting, bringing together industry leaders to power Britain’s carbon capture capital. The site itself offers immediate connectivity to the River Tees, the North Sea, Europe and beyond, unlocking global markets for sustainable innovators and global pioneers.
A highly skilled workforce specialising in manufacturing, engineering and offshore industries, will be complemented by Teesworks Academy. The new academy builds on the back of core skill sets and the region’s history of innovation to enhance skills, showcase career opportunities and create a world-class workforce to meet future industrial needs.
