Concept designs submitted for Approval in Dundee, Grangemouth, Rosyth and Leith
Gordon Murray Architects were commissioned by Forth Energy, a joint venture between Forth Ports Plc and SSE (Scottish Southern Energy) to develop conceptual design proposals for a series of new Biomass Renewable Energy Plants at their UK ports of Dundee, Grangemouth, Rosyth and Leith in support of Section 36 Applications.
The projects have an estimated combined construction value of over £1bn. Each project is developed through a clear exploration and understanding of the technological processes involved in the plant operation, by drawing inspiration from the physical and historical setting in which each plant is located, and through intensive research into historical precedent of the power station as building typology. This ensures every project has a unique design solution appropriate to its function and place.
