Note 1:The new CHP (Combined Heat and Power) plant was built and is operated by Holz Energie UK at Poniel. The plant dries biomass (wood chips) and gasifies the wood chips for heat and power generation. Future industrial units on this site will be able to use some of the output from this plant.

It is built on the hardstanding that was used by the former Washing Plant of Dalquhandy Opencast Mine.

I am grateful to Fred and Gillian Farrell for advice and information about the Poniel area
