Prestwick Aerospace Integrated Minewater Heat Network


Date: Oct 2016 – Feb 2017
Location: South Ayrshire, Scotland
Client: Public Sector
Stage: Feasibility

TRE were subcontracted as part of a wider project to assess the feasibility of a district energy scheme to supply a proportion of power, heating and cooling requirements to key stakeholders in the Prestwick Aerospace area. This project was funded by the Low Carbon Infrastructure Programme (LCIP) managed by Scottish Enterprise and funds from South Ayrshire Council.

TRE assessed the technical and financial viability of utilising the flooded mines beneath the site as a potential low-grade heat source and/or thermal store.
