Scot Heat & Power has won the contract to supply biomass fuel to St Andrews University’s £25 million green energy project. The Broxburn-based company will supply round wood for the next five years to the Guardbridge Energy Centre – a macro-renewable project on the site of the former Curtis Fine Papers Mill that is supporting the university’s aim of becoming the UK’s first carbon neutral institution of its kind. The biomass Energy Centre will use virgin round wood, sourced locally from sustainably managed forests by Scot Heat & Power to produce and store hot water. This will then be pumped four miles underground to the university’s North Haugh Campus via a district heating network that will heat and cool its administration and academic building, as well as its laboratories and residences.
