Tees Renewable Energy Plant (Tees REP) is a 299MW biomass-powered, combined heat and power (CHP) plant proposed by MGT Teesside, a wholly owned subsidiary of MGT Power. UMC architects were appointed for the initial concept design before successfully securing the necessary planning approvals for the project in August 2016. Construction works commmenced in early 2017 and the new plant is scheduled to come online in 2020. Tees REP will generate approximately 2.4TWh of electricity a year, enough to power 600,000 homes, which is equivalent to annually displacing 1.2Mt of CO2 emissions. The project site covers an area of 14ha and is located approximately 5km east of Middlesbrough and 6km west of Redcar, on an industrial zoned land adjacent to Teesport, Teesside.
