Designated as Scotland’s first Green Regeneration and Innovation District, homes and businesses across the Clyde Gateway site will be heated using an ambitious new system, costing £6.1M, and will allow people to live and work in a low carbon and resilient community in the near-future. Developed in partnership with Scottish Water Horizons the scheme will provide an instant supply of heat and hot water using a metered system that ensures residents and businesses only pay for the energy they use. The system has been designed to be considerably more efficient than conventional heating and should significantly reduce future energy bills.
FES are delighted to support SWH in the design and construction of the 2,643 sq ft energy centre at Scottish Water’s existing Waste Water Treatment Works in Dalmarnock which has recently begun following Clyde Gateway, signing a 25-year agreement with SWH to supply heat in the form of hot water for homes and businesses.
Initially 50 homes and Clyde Gateway’s new East Works offices, at the former Purifier Studios, will be connected to the district heating network with plans to connect 300+ homes and commercial businesses over the coming years. The new system will also power the Dalmarnock Waste Water Treatment Works.
