The UK's Largest Industrial Zone

Teesworks is the UK’s largest and most connected industrial zone, home to diverse, sustainable and low-carbon activity. Unrivalled in size, scale and opportunity Teesworks will be a diverse, multi-sector setting, bringing  together industry leaders to power Britain’s carbon capture capital. The 4,500-acres site offers immediate connectivity to Teesport, the North Sea, Europe and beyond, unlocking global markets for sustainable innovators and global pioneers.

Huge projects, like Net Zero Teesside, the UK’s most developed carbon capture, utilisation and storage project, and MGT, the world’s largest biomass power plant place the emphasis on sustainability, modern industry and renewable activity. The site also has plans to become the UK’s leading location for offshore wind, with plans for a new quay specifically to service the sector currently in development. The quay will be operational by 2022, making it ideal to service offshore wind projects like Dogger Bank.

Part of the Teesside Freeport

Teesworks sits at the heart of the Teesside Freeport and benefits from tax and customs relief as well as other strategically important businesses, facilities, operations and other industrial assets. Immediately south of the site is the world-renowned Wilton International complex, also part of the Freeport and home to some of the biggest chemical companies on the globe.

There’s also 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’s at the centre of a high-value, low-carbon circular economy.

A Gateway to Global Markets

Teesworks is the UK’s most well-connected industrial zone, offering immediate connectivity via rail, road, sea and air.

Positioned at the mouth of the River Tees, Teesworks offers direct access to the North Sea unlocking the trade hubs of Europe as well as gas and oil feeds, and Dogger Bank Wind Farm. The site itself encompasses the major port facilities of Teesport, Redcar Bulk Terminal and the soon to be built South Bank Quay.

As the UK’s third largest port by tonnage, Teesport is owned and operated by PD Ports who handle more than 5,000 vessels, around 30 million tonnes of cargo and ½ million TEU every year. Further downstream, Redcar Bulk Terminal is one of the best deep water facilities of its kind in the UK and, at 17m, is the deepest on the east coast of England.

Teesworks also benefits from fast and reliable connectivity via road, rail and air. Modern infrastructure and convenient connectivity bring the UK’s commercial, industrial and manufacturing regions closer together. The site boasts three rail freight service connections at strategic locations across the development. For passenger services, the East Coast Main Line makes central London reachable in just 2 hours 20 minutes, with similar journey times to Manchester and Edinburgh. Just over 15 miles away, Teesside International Airport provides a gateway to global destinations for both business and logistics, including daily flights to hub airports London Heathrow and Amsterdam Schiphol.

South Bank Quay

Plans have been submitted to develop a new £90million quay at South Bank .

The 1km quay is being constructed to specifically service the offshore energy sector. The quay will also provide instant access to over 500 acres of manufacturing, storage and mobilisation facilities, making it ideal for offshore wind manufacturing.

The quay is an essential step towards establishing a clean energy cluster and is earmarked to be operational by the end of 2022. With Dogger Bank Zone A starting construction in 2022, the new quay facility is primed to take advantage such opportunities and subsequent works required for Zones B and C.

Already the world’s largest offshore wind manufacturer, GE Renewable Energy, have confirmed it will build its multimillion-pound state-of-the-art wind turbine manufacturing facility at this location.


Special Economic Area

Teesworks has significant Government support and in the 2018 Autumn Budget it was granted Special Economic Area status, the only site in the UK to have such status. So far Government has backed the site with more than £200million to prepare the land for new investment.
