Labour MP for Redcar, Anna Turley, has today welcomed plans to build a £100 million data centre at Wilton which will create approximately 400 jobs for the area.
The project is being driven by ST2 – a sustainable technology start up – and will be powered by Sembcorp. ST2 have completed a land exchange for a 31-acre plot and a planning application has been submitted.
“This is an exciting proposal and I’m really pleased to see ST2 have chosen Teesside as the place to make this investment. It is another vote of confidence in our area and our local workforce and shows that we have the skills and infrastructure to attract big investments like this.
“I look forward to seeing this project progress and hope it will encourage other technology start-ups to choose Teesside and create more quality technology jobs like these.”
