We are regional enablers
Our investments in infrastructure have played a key role in our resiliency as a business over the last ten years and we are proud to have achieved 10% annual compound growth year over this period.
We have invested over £1billion into key projects across the group to future proof the business in the local areas in which we operate, creating thousands of direct and indirect jobs and business opportunities.
Some of our highlight investments include:
Liverpool2, a £400m investment to expand the UK’s largest transatlantic port and create one of Europe’s most advanced deep-water container terminals. This terminal has transformed the Port of Liverpool which now welcomes some of the largest vessels in the world, opening up import and export trade opportunities.
A £100m investment on a custom-built biomass import terminal now provides a robust and reliable supply chain for Drax Group plc. The terminal includes a new rail loading facility and storage for up to 100,000 tonnes and provides a sustainable, all rail solution from the West to the East coast.
The 1000 acre Hunterston PARC, just 40 minutes from Glasgow, and officially one of Britain’s flagship inward investment opportunities, offers unparallel redevelopment opportunities. Our vision to see this as an exciting Energy and Marine campus will bring together cutting edge world class operators, universities and innovators to deliver technological advances in power generation and aquaculture.
