Europe’s biggest clean room goes under the hammer.

Dec 17, 2010 | The former Hyundai factory in Dunfermline, Scotland, dubbed locally as the ‘Hyundai White Elephant’ is set to be transformed into a centre for the renewable energy sector. Hyundai’s original plans to open a semi conductor facility never came to fruition, despite the £80 million spent on installing top of the range site utilities. The site has changed hands several times since Hyundai’s exit, firstly being sold to Motorola and subsequently to Freescale. Shepherd Offshore Group acquired the complete site in November 2010. In order to facilitate the new development the unused plant and equipment will be sold and the buildings demolished to make way for the state of the art renewable energy centre spanning the 150 acre site.
