px Group was delighted to welcome Greg Hands, the Minister of State for Energy, Clean Growth and Climate Change, and Beverley and Holderness MP, Graham Stuart, to Saltend Chemicals Park last week.
Accompanying Minister Hands and Graham Stuart on their visit was a range of local and regional political leaders, including: the leader of North Lincolnshire Council Rob Waltham, the Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council Jonathan Owen, Executive Director of Planning and Economic Regeneration and Deputy Chief Executive Alan Menzies, and East Riding of Yorkshire Council Cabinet Member for Economic Investment Jane Evison.
During their visit to the site they learned about the trade and investment opportunities that the Humber Freeport presents and the low carbon opportunities that the Humber could utilise in the near future.
This was followed by a walking tour of Triton Power Station and control room where they were treated to an incredible view of the Humber region from the rooftop and a walking tour of Saltend Chemicals Park, where they met a number of the apprentices who are learning and training there.
With the skills agenda high on the government’s list, the Minister also heard from px staff Alex Beaumont and Connie Bell who described their career journeys since starting at Saltend.
Patrick Pogue, Group Director Growth & Innovation at px Group said: “We were delighted to host Greg Hands and Graham Stuart along with senior leaders of East Riding and North Lincolnshire councils at Saltend Chemicals Park. It was fantastic to be able to show them around the site and share with them the exciting energy transition opportunities which are in the pipeline for Saltend and to introduce them to some of the exceptional young people who work in our business.”
After welcoming Minister Hands and having a tour of Saltend Chemicals Park, Graham said: “It was great to welcome the Energy Minister, Greg Hands, to Beverley and Holderness to showcase how many high paid, high skill jobs will be created by the Humber leading the way in the government’s aim to make the UK Net Zero by 2050.”
