Wheal Jane Ltd
Wheal Jane Ltd is the holding company and the hub of the Group. Its business is focused on the Wheal Jane site, home to all the Wheal Jane Group companies, where it manages every aspect of the site’s operation and development.
The business provides services to the mine water treatment plant operated by Veolia Ltd on behalf of the Coal Authority, and manages the storage of residue from the plant on site. It ensures that all operations and activities at Wheal Jane meet European and UK legislation and that it fulfils the planning conditions applied by Cornwall Council. The business was the first in the UK to fully comply with new EU legislation controlling facilities like Wheal Jane.
Managing the site also involves the company providing services to the growing community of Earth Science businesses operating on the site as part of the Wheal Jane Masterplan. These include electrical, mechanical, maintenance, landscaping and construction. The Wheal Jane Masterplan is an innovative post-mining project which is progressively remediating the site whilst developing the former headworks area into a specialist business cluster.
A number of renewable energy projects at varying stages of evaluation and development are progressively contributing to the sustainability of the site. In time, the site and the Earth Science Park could be powered and heated entirely from on site renewable sources.
