Our Mission

To bring together world leading innovators in the marine industry to collaborate and further, marine manufacturing in the UK.

Based on the river Clyde on the West Coast of Scotland, the Scottish Marine Technology Park consists of almost 50 acres of brownfield land on the banks of the Clyde with its own 150m deep water heavy lift berth.

The Malin Group’s manufacturing arm is currently underway with  planning consent granted for the first plot on the site, which will bring the quayside back into full use. This first phase, once complete, will include a large fabrication facility and a deep-water jetty with a 1,100 tonne ship hoist – the largest of its kind in Europe. Consent also enables the required remediation works to develop the site.

Our development will look to support national initiatives such as the “Clyde mission.”   The plan, unveiled at the State of the City Economy Conference, looks to boost the river’s traditional strengths in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering, while fostering new sectors to breathe life into the currently derelict area. 


Our Impact

Our vision, we hope will have a real and positive impact for the local and national economy.

Following the recent award of funding from West Dunbartonshire Council and the Clyde Mission, a recent EIA undertaken by Stantec  suggested that the SMTP will support 615 construction jobs, 750 marine manufacturing roles and 305 retail and office based positions, contributing £65.5 million to the city economy each year.

The park is committed to offer not only new ways of working, but a continual drive for development; technological advancements are harnessed to drive forward the industry, transforming the ways in which we work and the opportunities open to this and future generations. New and often previously unimagined roles will be available to local residents, totalling 1,130, whilst also attracting new organisations to the park to create a thriving, inclusive and progressive working community.

A 20 minute neighbourhood for the local community, will also be created, offering a space which attracts a range of exciting employment opportunities. The new space will create a thriving quayside business culture, that is open and accessible to all, bringing opportunity to this and future generations in terms of jobs, training and ongoing development. The close proximity of resources is built on our commitment to cleaner ways of working, living and travelling, with local residents enabled to easily access this improved infrastructure.

Our White Paper

After the recent funding award, which will enable the park to move to the second phase of development, the Group have prepared a white paper, outlining the additional resources required to realise the vision, and the myriad of benefits it will bring. You can download the white paper here.
