Morgan Sindall will create up to 200 jobs during the construction of the 16,000 sq m factory and 2,500 sq m of offices.
To minimise the carbon footprint of the scheme, the energy produced during generator tests will be fed back into the National Grid.
Harry Thorburn, Morgan Sindall managing director in Scotland said: “The manufacturing sector is showing encouraging signs of growth in Scotland with a significant rise in new orders.
“On this scheme we’ll be using modular construction techniques which will see parts of the facility created off-site to fast-track the construction process.”
Work begins this month and is expected to complete in June 2011.
