PD Ports has welcomed the government’s announcement to locate the UK’s first hydrogen transport hub in the Tees Valley.
The river Tees is the lifeblood of the Tees Valley region and a leading gateway for international trade, providing businesses throughout the North and across the UK with essential access to global markets.
At its heart, Teesport offers a unique capability to handle amongst the largest vessels in the world, backed by state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities.
Having attracted over £1 billion of new investment to the region in the last decade, PD Ports is committed to supporting the government’s ‘levelling up’ agenda for the North.
And CEO Frans Calje believes this latest announcement places the Tees region at the forefront of the battle against climate change.
“As home to many world-leading manufacturers, the River Tees is already the base for many businesses and enterprises delivering innovative renewable energy technology,” said Frans.
“We are in a prime position to lead the charge against climate change and help achieve the government’s target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
“PD Ports is delighted that our region will be at the forefront of this ongoing battle against climate change, and we will continue working with our partners along the River Tees to deliver investments that will further strengthen the global competitiveness of the Tees Valley.”
