be deployed by Aggreko around the world.
A recent evaluation of the development predicts that when
the whole development is complete it will support around 1400
additional local jobs and that, by 2019, the cumulative impact on
the local economy will be in excess of £450 million.

Strathleven Regeneration Company, (SRC) a non-profit making
organisation set up by West Dunbartonshire Council and Scottish
Enterprise with the support of Diageo.
The new flagship plant will be used to design, develop and
manufacture power generators and temperature control equipment
which will be deployed around the world.
