The Queens Quay Heat Pump scheme, which will be the largest of its kind in the UK, will take heat from the River Clyde to heat local homes and businesses. The project will demonstrate the use of large-scale heat pump projects in the UK.

The Queens Quay development in Clydebank will transform the former John Brown Shipyard from an industrial landscape to a vibrant, diverse and architecturally engaging community. The plans for the 23 hectare site will create 1,000 private homes, 200 rented homes and the associated infrastructure to support them such as a health centre, care home and commercial facilities.

The project will feature Scotland’s first major water source heat pump, taking heat from the River Clyde and distributing it to customers through a district heating network. The project use heat pumps built by Star Renewable Energy in Glasgow.
