Following Corus' announcement of the cessation of steel
manufacture on Teesside, ONE NorthEast and Tees Valley Unlimited
commissioned GENECON as part of a team of consultants to prepare an
investment plan for the North & South Tees area to unlock new
opportunities in process industries. A range of exciting new
investment prospects were identified in sectors such as port
logistics, carbon capture & storage, new energy including
off-shore wind and biomass,and innovative chemical sectors.
Specific proposals for land assembly, infrastructure and joint
venture delivery were identified - these formed the core of the
subsequently announced Tees Valley Industrial Programme. GENECON
was appointed to provide management consultancy support to TVIP
delivery, working with the ONE / TVU team on the ground to prepare
investment business cases and to support Corus in reviewing key
opportunities for redevelopment of its surplus land holdings.
