Facility Overview ... Barcaldine, Oban, Argyll   For centuries the sea has been a key element in the lives of people in the West of Scotland - a transport link, a source of food, a provider of raw materials.   To this day, the sea continues to be utilised in the same way but now with greater awareness of marine resources, their potential and productivity. New vibrant industries like aquaculture, have been established; oil exploration has extended to the west of Scotland; research into sustainable development is increasing.   Lithgow's Limited, with a history of involvement in marine engineering, aquaculture and land management saw unique qualities inherent in the Barcaldine site. It is Lithgow's philosophy to encourage progress through partnership.   The establishment of a campus dedicated to development of the marine resource, creating partnerships between Lithgow's and other business and research interests; that is the aim of The Marine Resource Centre. MRC development plans ...   The vision for the site is to develop it into the most important commercial development campus for marine resources on the west coast of Scotland. In order to achieve this further tenancies will be encouraged that compliment existing services on site along with increased use of the existing and developing infrastructure. In order to help protect and conserve the local Serpulid reef, the marine resource centre should become the main thoroughfare for marine traffic avoiding the sensitive area elsewhere in Loch Creran.   The existing hydro-electric scheme generates 350kw of power for the whole site as well as the export of power to the National Grid.  The scheme was installed in the late 1990s and has generated power for the site and export to the Grid problem-free since installation. Water is piped from the MRC owned reservoir via the turbine to the site.  This water supply has development capacity for utilisation in any project requiring large quantities of reliable clean freshwater of up to 600litres per second of flow.
