Brockwell's current project pipeline creates over £800m of investment opportunity. As one of Scotland's largest potential energy infrastructure investors we are well placed to deliver new world class energy assets and infrastructure to help Scotland achieve its waste and CO2 reduction targets.
Planning was obtained in January 2017 for a 215,000 tonne per annum facility to provide a replacement CHP facility to support the Earls Gate Energy Centre ("EGEC").
Beside providing a high quality residual waste solution built using the best available proven technology in the world, the heat and power generated by the plant will be used to support four different chemical operations in the Earls Gate site. The plant will be replacing an old Gas fired plant. The heat and power off-take will make the planned plant one of the most efficient in the UK, helping the drive the shift from using heat produced from fossil fuels to heat from renewable sources.

Westfield was the site of one of the UK’s largest open cast coal mines. Mining began in the 1950’s and finished in the 1980’s. The site has been largely derelict since then. Following the collapse of Scottish Coal in 2013, the site was acquired by Hargreaves Services.
Brockwell have an exclusive option to lease the site to develop a number of energy projects. The key focus of development is the construction of a 200,000 tonne energy-from-waste plant. The plant will generate significant activity on the site and will be able to offer cheap renewable heat and power to attract other industrial operators to invest in the site.

Broken Cross is a former surface mine 3.5km to the north of Rigside, in South Lanarkshire. The original plans for a wind energy development here were submitted by Scottish Coal in 2012. Brockwell Energy has now acquired the necessary land and intellectual property rights for the wind development, and we remain committed to developing a wind energy project at Broken Cross.

Brockwell Energy are pleased to confirm an application has been made to Scottish Ministers for the development of a wind energy project within North Kyle Forest in East Ayrshire. Incorporating 54 wind turbines, it will be one of the largest such initiatives in Scotland.
Conceived following the collapse of coal industry, its creation recognises the major shortfall in funds available to undertake meaningful restoration across disturbed parts of the North Kyle site and the need to create funding to invest in re-generation in local communities impacted from the demise of coal.
The project includes a commitment to restore parts of the site and assist in regeneration of the area.

The proposed Glentaggart Wind Farm is located within woodland to the south east of Glespin, South Lanarkshire. It was part of assets that were owned by Scottish Coal, and is now held under option by Brockwell. The site has never been mined and is an area of woodland of variable quality, roughly bisected by an access track that services other local wind farms and developments. Access to the site for all vehicles, HGVs and abnormal loads would be via an existing private track running from the B7078 at Mid Rig.
