BROCKWELL ENERGY INVESTS IN FIFE WITH CREATION OF GREEN JOBS

InvestFife news

January 20, 2022

Brockwell Energy has announced that its proposed incinerator facility in Kinglassie will be built with the creation of green jobs once complete.

 

It has completed finance for the Westfield Energy from Waste (EfW) project, with work starting on the 240,000-tonne facility in February 2022. It is expected to be fully operational early in 2025 and create more than 400 jobs during its construction phase and 40 long-term skilled roles once in operation.

 

Councillor Altany Craik, Convener - Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee, welcomed Brockwell Energy’s investment in Fife. He said:

 

“Brockwell Energy’s commitment to build a new incinerator in Fife is extremely positive news. Jobs will be created in the short term as part of the construction process, whilst 40 green jobs will be created in the local community once operations start. This is most welcome!

 

“The facility, when complete, will provide a key outlet for waste, which can’t be recycled. This is a significant step forward to achieving Scotland’s climate change targets, whilst reinforcing Fife as a prime location for specialist waste processing businesses.”

 

The proposed plant will support Scottish Government climate change targets by providing essential waste disposal capacity that will be needed to deal with projected residual waste disposal volumes, even taking account of the most optimistic recycling targets. The plant will also be a catalyst for the re-development of one of the largest derelict brownfield former coal mining sites in Central Scotland.

 

Neil Young, Technical and Operations Director at Brockwell Energy, commented:

 

“After many years of hard work, we are delighted to have completed the financing and contracting to enable the construction of this facility. It has been a very challenging economic period and we are grateful for the continuing support of all the key stakeholders involved in the project, including Fife Council Economic Development and Cireco.”

 

The EfW facility will be the leading catalyst to support the development of the wider Westfield site. Brockwell and the landowner, Hargreaves Land Limited, have already engaged with several industrial businesses to promote the site, thereby creating further employment opportunities. The plant will bring utilities to the site, as well as offering a cost effective and reliable source of renewable heat and power.

 

Neil added:

 

“Our long-term aim is to look at how we can locate other renewable energy schemes within the wider site to enhance our offering to the market and demonstrate our commitment to developing and investing in projects that meet our environmental and social governance criteria.”
