Shoreham Power Station, West Sussex

TRM DA
Shoreham Power Station is a 400MWe gas-fired power in Southwick, West Sussex. It was built on the site of the Brighton A & B Power Stations which were located on the south side of Shoreham Harbour. Predating these stations, town of Brighton has a long history of electrical supply. The gas fired station is built on the site of the B station, and named after nearby Shoreham-by-Sea. It is owned by Scottish Power, being constructed by Alstom and Mott MacDonald, and opened in 2002 costing £150m. It was originally owned by South Coast Power Ltd, a consortium of Scottish Power and SEEBOARD (owned by Central and South West Corporation). In September 2004, Scottish Power bought the other 50% share of the power station for £26m from American Electric Power. The Monarch's Way footpath passes next to the station, and the station backs on to Southwick Beach. It is a CCGT-type power station that runs on natural gas. There is one Alstom gas turbine from which the exhaust gases heat an ABB heat recovery steam generator which drives an ABB steam turbine, in a single-shaft configuration. The chimney is 100m tall, and a local landmark. #Alstom #Brighton #Chimney #Fired #Gas #Harbou #Hove #MacDonald #Mott #Power #Scottish #Shoreham #Sussex #TRM_DA #Turbine
