How MGT is managing for Covid-19

The spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) is unprecedented and is having significant consequences for the UK construction industry.

At a time of international uncertainty, the health, safety and wellbeing of workers on site at the Tees Renewable Energy Plant (‘Tees REP’) is our priority.

Construction at Tees REP was suspended on 24 March 2020 pending additional preparations being made by MGT Teesside Ltd’s (‘MGT’) contractors and subcontractors to comply with new and evolving government guidance concerning public health protocols in light of Covid-19.

This action has been taken to protect the health and safety of a large workforce on site, and ensure that a reduced workforce can return to site to continue key construction activities. At this point in time, only a small number of critical maintenance staff remain on site, following all social distancing protocols in compliance with UK central government guidance.

MGT is the owner and operator of Tees REP. Our contractors and subcontractors have direct and contractual responsibility for the majority of workers on site, and MGT is in constant dialogue with necessary parties as the situation evolves.

This statement was correct at the time of writing, 26 March 2020. There may be a delay to the publication of updates to this statement, as required.
