A steelworks site in North Yorkshire is set for an extensive update to its electrical network.
Recently rebranded as Teesworks, the industrial site based in Redcar is currently served by an antiquated power network. In considerable need of an update, the last sizeable investment in the industrial facility’s network was made almost 50 years ago.
The large-scale project will involve the creation of entirely new substations and the replacement of the underground infrastructure already in place. The installation will also feature an upgrade to all equipment in use within the site’s buildings.
Enterprises planning an industrial electrical installation in Chester, Redcar and other parts of the country should only select qualified contractors for projects. Certified electricians can ensure any new systems required are installed safely and to code.
Mayor of Tees Valley, Ben Houchen, announced:
“As part of our comprehensive development plans across the Teesworks site we must create a sustainable high-voltage network to meet the future demand of the businesses we’re attracting to the site such as Net Zero Teesside.”
Commenting on the minimal investment in electrical infrastructure at the site since the 70s, he added:
“We are going to put that right with this critical improvement and expansion in the power network.”
The Teesworks site has provided a boost to both the area’s economy and community, with 208 new local jobs created at the facility. This number is expected to expand in 2021 when hundreds more employment opportunities are created at the steelworks site.
