Waste not, want not on Teesside

[ November 10, 2020   //   ]

PD Ports has signed an agreement with Wentworth Clean Power (WCP) to bring a £230 million waste-to-energy project to Teesport. WCP  and its partners, will develop, finance and deliver the project on Dockside Road, to the south of Teesport Commerce Park.

The Teesport Renewable Energy Centre, will sit on a 9-acre footprint and will use a variety of waste streams, characterised by rigorous environmental credentials, positioning PD Ports, and the Tees Valley, at the forefront of the clean energy sector. When complete the plant will consume 300,000 tonnes of feedstock and deliver enough power for up to 27,000 homes.

The next steps for the project will be discussions with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, the local Planning Authority, to formulate, prepare and submit a full application so that construction can commence.
