Strategic Partners

The South Tees Development Corporation has several strategic partners that already form part of the Development Corporation area. These partners bring with them major industrial assets and, as well as the former SSI site, include PD Ports and the deep water port of Teesport, British Steel Beam Mill and Service Centre, Tarmac’s Aggregate Jetty, BOC’s industrial gases, Northumbria Water’s industrial effluent treatment facility, Tees Commerce Park and Redcar Bulk Terminal.


BOC is a leading provider of gases to industrial operators in the area. It is an important asset to the site and is currently supplying the South Tees Site Company with nitrogen to support its operation at the former SSI site.

British Steel

Operating the world-renowned Teesside Beam Mill, British Steel occupies about 300 acres in the South Tees area. Its current operations focusses solely on the production of long sections and profiles.


Nearing completion, MGT’s £650million biomass power plant is the largest of its kind in the world. It will be fuelled by wood chip and pellets and, by around 2020, will generate electricity for the equivalent of 600,000 homes.

Northumbrian Water

Northumbrian Water operates a state-of-the-art effluent treatment facility within the site, serving the major industrial complexes in the area. It is a key attribute for the area and boosts its attractiveness to potential industrial operators.

PD Ports (Teesport)

One of the best connected and fastest growing ports in the UK, Teesport offers deep water facilities and lock-free access to the North Sea.


PMAC is bringing a £250million waste to energy plant on Redcar Bulk Terminal land. The facility will generate enough electricity from household and commercial waste to power 56,000 homes.

Redcar Bulk Terminal

RBT is one of the best deep water facilities of its type in the UK. Its 320-metre long quay can accommodate vessels up to 17 metres draft and it is approved for the storage of uncleared goods.

Sirius Minerals

Sirius’ £3.2billion Woodsmith Mine project will provide access to export for the world’s largest polyhalite mine, delivered by a 23-mile tunnel and conveyor system from its mine in North Yorkshire.
