Troon CHP Biomass Plant

Glennon Brothers
Main Contractor

Construction of a new state of the art CHP plant.

The construction of this new state of the art CHP plant provides the final link in transforming Glennon Brothers, Troon into a fully integrated site. Logs are delivered from the coasts and islands of Scotland by boat, to be processed in the sawmill. Some of this finished timber will then cross the road to their engineered timber facility, Alexanders Timber Design (ATD), to be incorporated into quality timber frame homes. The CHP plant will produce sufficient electrical power to power the whole plant and export up to 2.5MW of power to the National Grid. Additionally the hot water will be pumped across the road through the 1.2km long district heating pipes to provide heat for the timber drying kilns. 3b construction, acting as Principal Contractor, were able to achieve the demanding 6 month contract programme, for power to grid, as a result of their integrated approach to construction with over 90% of the construction works being delivered by their in house labour and plant which included earthworks, groundworks, reinforced concrete, structural steel framed buildings, building cladding works, M & E works and internal fit out from joinery to painting. Good collaboration between client, 3b construction, plant installation contractor, designer, QS and architect enabled a positive site team to be created which all worked together towards the shared goal.
