Other Key Sites & Projects


Kirkleatham Business Park

Redcar and Cleveland’s most prestigious, greenfield site located adjacent to Wilton International.  Home to worldwide automotive manufacturer Elring Klinger and UK Steel Enterprise’s established business centre, the park also houses a variety of local and national companies.

The 25 hectare site is owned by Homes England and is targeted at the Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering, Chemicals, Renewable Energy and Professional Services Sectors.  An ideal location for process industry supply chain companies given its proximity to Wilton International and the Teesworks site.

Teesside Freeport

In 2021, key sites in Redcar & Cleveland were given freeport status and is a part of Teesside Freeport. Building on existing manufacturing strengths, particularly in chemical and materials processing, biomanufacturing, offshore wind and renewable activity, Teesside Freeport will create more than 18,000 jobs and boost the local economy by billions in the first five years.

What is a Freeport?

Freeports are tax and secure customs zones where business can be carried out inside a country’s land border, but where normal tax and customs rules don’t apply. While located geographically within a country, freeports essentially exist outside its borders for tax purposes.

Benefits of a Freeport

  • No stamp duty land tax
  • Five years of zero business rates
  • Full rebates for construction and
  • machinery investment
  • Enhanced capital allowances
  • Employer NI contributions rate relief

BP Hydrogen Projects

BP Blue Hydrogen (H2Teesside)

H2Teesside is bp’s proposed world-scale hydrogen project that aims to produce 1GW of CCUS-enabled blue hydrogen and start-up in 2027. It will capture, and send for storage, up to 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year via the Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP).

BP Green Hydrogen (Hygreen Teesside)

Hygreen Teesside will be Britain’s largest green hydrogen project, that will produce fuel for hydrogen-powered vehicles – at 60MW of electrolyser capacity, that’s enough zero-carbon hydrogen to fuel 1,300 green lorries, by 2025.

Redcar Energy Centre

Redcar Energy Centre, a partnership between Low Carbon Ltd and PMAC Energy Ltd, is a low carbon waste to energy centre. It’s expected to divert between 350,000 tonnes and 450,000 tonnes of waste per year away from UK landfill. Close to 50MW of low carbon electricity would be produced for the local grid – enough to power more than 100,000 homes. 100 full-time jobs are expected to be created once operational.
