Major investment:

Since 2012, over ten companies have moved onto the Enterprise Zone including Omega Plastics, Propipe and, Durable Technologies. Significant foreign investment has been a feature of the Zone’s development, including US company, Air Products (£600m), Korean company, Lotte Chemicals (£44.7m) and Singaporean Company Sembcorp (£200m)

Green Energy:

Air Products is building two of the largest renewable energy facilities in the world using advanced plasma gasification energy-from-waste technology, with the potential to revolutionize the waste-to-energy sector. The Tees Valley plants will be the first of their kind in the UK, and the largest of their kind anywhere in the world, turning waste into low carbon products that fuel cars, create energy and producing chemicals that are the building blocks of everyday products such as plastics, paint and textiles.

Offshore wind and subsea technologies:

The Teeside Advanced Manufacturing Park will soon be home to a new Offshore Wind Validation Centre – the first of its kind in the UK offering specialist research facilities for the offshore sector. Tracerco, another company on the Zone, is developing technology for inspection and flow assurance of subsea coated pipelines.

This Enterprise Zone has a planned extension from April 2016.
