Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 12.33.13The Teesside Engineering Network (TEN) continues its mission to champion the development of Tees Valley with an expert briefing highlighting the opportunities that will be generated by two significant North East regeneration projects.

Attendees at the forthcoming event on October 23 will get the inside track on Sirius Minerals’ plans for a potash mine and MGT Power’s large scale bio-mass project.

Nicola Humble of TEN, said: “It is incredibly exciting to have two expert representatives, from high calibre companies speaking at our event – especially at such relevant points in their project timelines.

“We are looking forward to hearing their insightful and invaluable overview of the potential regional supply chain opportunities that will be created through their work.”

The keynote speakers will outline the background on:

  • The York Potash project. Up to 2,000 jobs are forecast following planning approval being given to Sirius Minerals to develop the UK’s biggest potash mine, including jobs at the Tees Valley processing and logistics facilities
  • MGT Power’s plans to build a £650m biomass power plant creating a total of 700 jobs

The Teesside Engineering Network was established in 2013 to support the local engineering supply chain, keep companies informed and aware of new tender and contract opportunities and to provide a forum of collaboration and best practice sharing.

TEN was developed by Axiom Engineering Associates, Francis Brown Ltd, Industrial Marine Hydraulics and Nortech Integrated Engineering Solutions.

It is supported by Tees Valley Unlimited with October’s event sponsored by Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.

The briefing will be held at Redcar Community Heart starting at 8am on Friday October 23.
