An 800-hectare process manufacturing site providing customers with competitively priced low carbon power and heat, Wilton International is one of the UK’s largest industrial locations.
The site currently offers over 200 hectares of prime development land suitable for both light and heavy industrial projects.
Wilton International leads the way on sustainable heat and power generation, featuring modern and efficient gas and steam turbine plants alongside biomass and energy from waste assets.
Below is a list of exciting developments already taking place on the site. Why don’t you do join them?
Tees Valley Lithium
Set to create 250 direct jobs, Tees Valley Lithium intends to construct the UK’s first lithium hydroxide plant, at Wilton International. The plant will support the processing of chemical elements used in batteries for electric vehicles (EVS).
Whitetail Clean Energy
Whitetail Clean Energy is poised to become the UK’s first 300MW Net Zero Power station based on Teesside. Anticipated to create 200 direct and indirect jobs during operation, the plant will generate approximately 300MW of clean power, while capturing and storing its carbon emissions in secure geological formations deep under the North Sea.
Sembcorp Battery Energy Storage
Development of Sembcorp’s battery system up to 360MW (Europe’s largest) to expand its portfolio, as well as to enable more renewable energy capacity to be integrated into the UK grid network for security and decarbonisation.
SABIC Green Energy Project
An £850m new green energy project estimated to create 300 jobs, SABIC have agreed the funding to restart its hydrocarbon cracker at Wilton and convert it to run on hydrogen, a greener source of energy.
Peak Resources‘s £112m minerals processing plant will produce materials used in the manufacture of powerful magnets, which will ultimately be placed in items including wind turbines, electric vehicles and renewable energy technologies. 130 jobs are expected to be created.
Anglo American – Woodsmith Mine
Anglo American’s £3.2 billion investment in the Woodsmith Project involves mining the mineral polyhalite from two 1.6km deep mine shafts at Woodsmith mine near Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. The polyhalite ore is then transported along a 37km tunnel to a processing facility at Wilton International, and the finished product, a low carbon environmentally friendly ‘POLY4’ fertiliser, is then exported via Teesport.
