In the construction phase there will be around 300 jobs created. In the experience of earlier HZI projects, where did the construction phase workforce come from?
The proportion of non-British work force is a function of the location of the sources of the main equipment supply chain, and the time during the construction phase this is measured. For example during the first 12 to 18 months, the civil engineering works are carried out, this is predominantly a British work force as the Civil Engineering sub-contractor will be a British company. This then during the mechanical and process equipment erection, as we import specialist plant and materials from abroad (for example the Moving Grate, Hopper, Boiler, parts of the Flu Gas Cleaning systems etc) and the those suppliers bring their own specialist erection and commissioning teams to team to site. Typically during this time the numbers of staff on site increase, and the ratio of British to non-British work force rises to approximately 60/40 respectively.
