Multiple services as well as an environmental impact assessment supported concurrent planning and marine licence applications
The oil terminal at Old Kilpatrick served the British Navy from 1918 until 1992 and was severely damaged during the Clydebank Blitz. The site is also classified as contaminated land by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). When Malin Group set out to complete a £10 million regeneration to reuse the site for industrial operations, they brought us in to support the remediation strategy.
Our integrated package included environmental impact assessment (EIA) coordination and environmental services such as noise and vibration, air quality, and ecology. The EIA outlined the site’s heavy hydrocarbon contamination as well as its effects on an adjacent special protection area home to redshank, otter, and Atlantic salmon.
We also provided services in geotechnical, structural, and civil engineering, hydraulic modelling and flood risk, planning, and public consultation. With a joint probability analysis for design flood levels and a drainage strategy for foul and surface water management (including sustainable urban drainage systems), we helped update the 2005 River Clyde Flood Model and outlined the site’s water strategy.
Employing our multidisciplinary technical expertise and knowledge of the site, the market, and the legal system enabled the seamless integration of services. The result? Malin Group returned the former Carless Oil Terminal to industrial use.
