M74 Heat & Power Park
3R Energy has secured planning permission for 28 hectares of industrial/ development land at Junction 11 of the M74 motorway in South Lanarkshire. The site brings to the market a private, serviced, location offering cheap heat and power within driver hours of Glasgow (37mins), Edinburgh (70mins), Manchester (176mins), Birmingham (245mins) and the transatlantic hub of Liverpool Port (178mins).
Located on Junction 11 of the M74, the M74 Heat and Power Park enjoys unparalleled connections to east, west and central Scotland as well as northern England, and is well placed to service the growing logistics industry across the UK.
This flexible development provides for new industrial units from 10,000 sqft up to 400,000 sqft. Anchor tenants at Junction 11 already include Dewars Whisky (part of the Bacardi Group), Harbro Ltd and Holz Energie UK. The site is well suited to the logistics industry, food and drink distribution, manufacturing and general industrial uses.
The development is one of Scotland’s newest “green” commercial and industrial parks, home to a Biomass CHP facility that produces constant, reliable heat and power all year round. Thermal energy produced by the plant can be used to heat the premises of neighbouring eco-park occupiers as well as being utilised by cold stores and companies that require heat in the manufacturing process. Electricity produced by the plant can also be supplied to neighbouring occupiers at heavily discounted rates. Businesses located in the park can therefore take advantage of low cost heat and power options in a strategic location.
The site benefits from existing road infrastructure directly onto the M74 motorway, mains water, power and telecommunications. The site, and the CHP facility, are in our sole ownership and we have a range of construction plots available from 2 acres upwards.
