Green Energy Park Could Create 1,000 Jobs & Apprenticeships In Lincolnshire

Plans for a green energy park in Scunthorpe could create as many as 1,000 apprenticeships and jobs in Lincolnshire, it has emerged.

The eco-friendly development, dubbed the North Lincolnshire Green Energy Park, will potentially be built on Scunthorpe’s Flixborough Industrial Estate if renewable energy infrastructure firm Solar 21 receives a green light for the plans.

If planning permission is granted, Solar 21 says the scheme will create around 600 temporary jobs in the construction phase, along with 400 permanent positions once the site is up and running.

It is expected that the 400 permanent vacancies on the outskirts of Scunthrope will be split between 300 full time jobs and around 100 apprenticeships.

Detailing the plans for the energy recovery facility, Michael Bradley, the chief executive of Solar 21, said: “The North Lincolnshire Green Energy Park is designed to be clean and efficient and ensure as much energy as possible is recovered from waste that cannot be recycled and to create opportunities for zero-carbon business development in the local area.”

“It will directly create up to 300 local jobs and up to 100 apprenticeships. It will also help address two urgent national and local needs; to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and generate low carbon energy.”

“We are consulting at an early stage because we want to gain valuable feedback from the local community. Whilst we are unable to hold face-to-face events at this time, we have gone the extra mile to ensure consultees have every opportunity to feedback on our proposals,” added Mr Bradley.

A public consultation on the proposals will now be held until the middle of July so that locals can give their feedback on the plans for Scunthorpe.
