Plans submitted for green energy plant in Teeside

Plans submitted for green energy plant in Teeside
Plans for a major new green power plant in Teeside have been announced by the energy company Sembcorp UK and resource management firm SITA UK.

Wilton 11 will be constructed adjacent to the existing Wilton Power Station and once completed will be able to provide enough electricity to power 55,000 homes through the burning of household and business waste.

It is thought that 130,000 tonnes of carbon emissions will be saved through the £200 million project. Further to this, the site will also reduce the levels of waste going to landfill in the area.

Leader of Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council George Dunning said: "The renewable energy sector is thriving on Teeside and this latest news is extremely welcome from both an environmental and economic point of view."

The plant will create 50 jobs once opened and sustain up to 200 positions during the construction phase.

Sembcorp first began operations in the UK in 2003 and has invested £2.7 billion in the Wilton International site in the past six years alone.  ADNFCR-1235-ID-800018894-ADNFCR
