About Margam Green Energy Plant

Glennmont Partners, a specialist clean energy investment fund, owns the Margam Green Energy Plant.

Glennmont Partners is one of Europe’s largest fund managers focusing exclusively on investment in clean energy infrastructure. It raises long-term capital to invest in alternative power generation projects in the UK and Europe – wind farms, biomass power stations, solar parks and small-scale hydro power plants. Glennmont’s carefully selected, risk managed investments deliver sustained performance and predictable returns over periods of 10 years or more.

Originally, the Margam project was a joint venture between Cardiff-based energy development company, Eco2 Limited and local company Western Logs Group.

The main EPC contractor is the consortium of Babcock Wilcox VØlund a/s and Interserve Construction Ltd. VØlund is part of the Babcock & Wilcox Group, and provides the process equipment whilst Interserve (Wales) is undertaking the civil engineering and building.

The waste wood that will fuel the Margam Green Energy Plant will be supplied by Stobart Biomass on a long-term contract. The waste wood will be sourced and supplied by Stobart from across the country, and will be transported by HGV.
