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. Eco2 now has responsibility for the plant’s overall operations, and fuel supply management.

The main EPC contractor was the consortium of Babcock Wilcox VØlund a/s (BWV) and Interserve Construction Ltd. VØlund is part of the Babcock & Wilcox Group, and provided the process equipment whilst Interserve (Wales) undertook the civil engineering and building.  BWV now has responsibility for the plant’s operations and maintenance.

The waste wood that fuels the Margam Green Energy Plant is supplied by Stobart Biomass on a long-term contract. The waste wood is  sourced and supplied by Stobart from across the country, and is transported by HGV (see FAQs section).
