Our Vision

A place with blue-green economy at its heart

Our vision is to create a nationally significant Energy and Marine campus. Bringing together leading industry operators, world-class universities and the latest innovators to deliver technological advances in areas such as power generation and aquaculture.

A new innovation centre – Hunterston PARC, is also being developed to offer market ready sites and facilities to attract new innovation, start-up and supply chain investment businesses.

Hunterston PARC’s strengths lie in its location with its deep water port, on-site rail connectivity, national grid connections and it’s sheer size, which allows for a broad range of options for occupation.

Over 320 Acres of Available Space:

  • Land leasing
  • Build to specification and lease
  • Long leasehold sales
  • Build to sell
  • Build to own and operate

Hunterston PARC’s vision is to bring together energy intensive industries with low cost, on-site power and heat generation, offering a unique opportunity to develop innovative, self-sustaining and cost-effective net zero operations aimed at supporting the delivery of Scotland’s 2045 climate change targets.

Significant Development Opportunities

It offers a number of significant development opportunities ideally suited to:
