Billingham-based Able UK wants to develop a 72-hectare site on former SSI steelworks land on the banks of the Tees. The huge investment at South Bank would deliver a vital boost to the Tees economy and could deliver 600 jobs. The facility would combine assembly, installation and servicing of offshore wind turbines on one super-site. Giant 1,000-plus tonne sections would arrive on the Tees for assembly before being shipped out. Details of the project have emerged in early-stage planning documents submitted to Redcar and Cleveland Council.
