Biomass CHP/Waste Recycling Complex, Pengarnddu Industrial Estate, Merthyr Tydfil, Mid Glamorgan, CF48 2TA

Guide Price* : £10,000

Upon Instructions of

  • Freehold site
  • Biomass CHP and recycling complex
  • Two gas generators with grid connection
  • 6.5 acre site
  • Vacant possession


For clarification whilst we are informed that there is still a live import electricity connection at the site, we believe that there is no contract in place for the export of electricity to WPD t


The property comprises two adjoining sites extending to approx 6.5 acres (2.64 ha) acres, which last operated as a waste recycling operation. There is a large industrial building with integrated office accommodation, the bulk of which is used for sorting reclaimed materials, large outdoor areas, and a Biomass gasification CHP Plant believed to have a rated output of 1,000KWe incorporating two Jenbacher CHP engines and generators.
The vendors have not tested any of the installation and it is believed that it is in poor repair having been inoperative for at least the last two years.
When operating the site was subject to an operating licence/permit for up to 500 tonnes of waste storage. The site previously had accreditation under Ofgem's Renewable Obligations Scheme(RO) and is still listed as "live" with 14 years remaining under the RO scheme. Records appear to show that the plant has only operated at full load for 46 hours and that there may still be a live connection for import and export at the site although no live contract in place. The site also provides ample hard standing and additional areas offering potential for expansion.


Merthyr Tydfil is lies on the north western edge of the Welsh Valleys, at the southern tip of the Brecon Beacons National Park at the junction of the A4465 Heads Of The Valleys dual carriageway link with the A40 and M50 to the east, with the A470 dual carriageway link to the M4 and Cardiff some 20 miles south.
The Pengarnddu Business Park is located adjacent to ASDA and the Dowlais Top Retail Park, approximately 1 mile north east of Merthyr Tydfil town centre. The Estate is strategically located adjacent to the A465 Heads of the Valleys Road, midway between the intersection at Dowlais and the intersection of the A470 to the west. The property occupies an elevated position on the estate and is accessed via a private drive.


The property will be sold on the basis of a 3 year lease outside of the protection of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 containing obligations on the buyer to remediate the site, together with an option in favour of the buyer to acquire the freehold for £1 once the remediation works have been completed. The buyer will be required to deposit a sum of money with the Council in respect of the remediation works which the Buyer can draw from in order to carry out the remediation works. The Council will however be permitted to retain this money if the remediation works are not completed by the end of the 3 year lease term.
