Minister Kwarteng announces latest energy publication.

Following a very busy Autumn period that included several key announcements and another successful Industrial Energy Stakeholder Forum, I am pleased to be able to announce today the publication of our Energy White Paper.

This white paper supports the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, setting out a detailed vision for the UK’s energy system that will enable homes and businesses to migrate away from our dependency on fossil fuels and move towards clean energy solutions. This publication contains a number of commitments, including investing £1 billion up to 2025 to facilitate the deployment of CCUS in two industrial clusters by the mid-2020s, with a further two by 2030; providing a £240 million Net Zero Hydrogen Fund for low carbon hydrogen production; and increasing the ambition of our Industrial Clusters Mission, aiming to deliver four low carbon clusters by 2030 and at least one net zero cluster by 2040.

The overarching message contained in this white paper is further commitment towards a decarbonised future, reaffirming how clean energy will deliver jobs and economic growth for the whole country.

I look forward to working with you next year to deliver on this important ambition.
Minister Kwasi Kwarteng

 Why did you decide to base your business at CATCH

Since the 1960’s the Roxby name has been synonymous with a wide range of training, it established a reputation for delivering first class, fast response training to a wide range of industries from its Roxby Training Solutions (RTS) HQ based in Teesside, meeting its clients’ needs in all cases. Its focus on CompEx (Competency in Explosive Atmospheres) meant it fast became a  centre of excellence for CompEx training. Through the training network we were approached discussions commenced with CATCH in 2013 to replicate this training facility within the Humber region. The opportunity was seized & the CompEx accredited centre was established & formally opened in March 2014.

The Humber for many years was primarily associated with the oil, gas and chemical industries and of late it has become a growth leader in the renewable, energy and bio-renewables too that shall further grow to engulf the carbon capture and Hydrogen sectors, all containing some form of hazardous areas. RTS Co-Owners David Sumpter and Geoff Fulcher along with their team have shown their continued commitment and investment to these industries by expanding the centre and by continuing to develop the courses provided to meet the requirement of the growing diverseness of industries in the area. We look forward to expanding on the training we provide moving forward as part of the CATCH training hub and their successful journey.

As Leonardo  Da Vinci once said, “Learning never exhausts the mind.” So into 2021 we go with the greatest optimism that it will be a safe and successful year, providing our clients that learning experience that hopefully will not exhaust their minds, well not too much anyway.

New research by industry coalition Sustainable Aviation confirms that the UK could be home to up to 14 sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production facilities in areas across the country, making it a world leader in clean aviation technology – and the Humber is one of them.

The Humber area is one of the largest emitters and boasts a number of projects including the CATCH joint bid with the Humber LEP for a cluster plan to accelerate the green recovery, including identifying opportunities for inward investment and those looking to diversify to take advantage of low carbon infrastructure.   It will also support the UK leadership of decarbonisation technologies and the creation of local jobs and supply chain.  The project will also shine a light on other major regional initiatives such as  the cutting edge zero carbon energy park in North East Lincolnshire, the Zero Carbon Humber project, plus the new CATCH networks for Industrial Decarbonisation and Hydrogen.

This month as part of our meet our tenants series – we interviewed Safety & Access – here is their story:

Safety & Access are one of the UK’s leading scaffolding and access training and H&S consultancy providers, offering a wide range of professional support services to a broad range of industry sectors since 1991

The company was formed as Scaffold Inspection Services to provide an independent scaffold inspection as a joint venture between International Scaffolding Company SGB and Hinton & Higgs Ltd, Europe’s largest Construction Health and Safety Consultancy. The range of services soon expanded to include Scaffold Inspection training, the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS) range of skill training, scaffolding consultancy advice and PASMA lightweight aluminium tower scaffolding training. In late 1997 the directors undertook a management buyout of the company that was then re-named Safety & Access Ltd.

Safety and Access Ltd continued to grow and expand its services to all industries and in mid-2012 they opened an additional fully accredited training facility at the CATCH facility at Stallingborough offering CISRS and PASMA accreditation for work at height and scaffolding related training.

In 2013 the Company further expanded its international training portfolio by opening CISRS facilities for international accreditation in the Middle East, Asia and the Far East. Further international expansion plans are in place for other regions.

Today Safety & Access Ltd are regarded as one of the leading scaffolding and work at height training providers and consultancy services specialising in the UK and International markets. The company can include some of the largest UK and International businesses amongst its client base.

The business is very proud of the achievements that the company has made over the years and are confident that the business, with the drive and support of the highly competent and professional team will continue to expand and diversify
