Employment and skills
Our proposals will give a significant boost to the local economy, providing substantial investment, high quality jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities.
THE DCO SCHEME: GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE
Figures from a recent economic report produced by consultants Mott MacDonald suggest that up to 300 jobs could be created within the DCO Scheme. These elements are the focus of this Development Consent Order submission.
We will place a major emphasis on creating training opportunities at the site, including an apprenticeship scheme with up to 100 places. We will also welcome school groups and other visitors to the site, so that we can educate the next generation about the role of the Energy Recovery Facility as part of the UK’s energy supply.
Our plan is that the North Lincolnshire Green Energy Park will eventually include a glasshouse development and business park. This would consist of up to 40,000 square metres of business space.
The opportunity to co-locate a glasshouse development will utilise heat and carbon dioxide from the Energy Recovery Facility.
Mott MacDonald have suggested these additional developments could create more than 1,000 jobs and support the longer-term sustainability of the port.
These additional elements will be brought forward as separate planning applications.
