Brockhall Hospital Power House.
Brockhall Hospital Power House.
This is now demolished but can be seen here SD7036 : Brockhall Hospital power house. These are six Lancashire boilers - two with original mechanical stokers and four converted to gas. There was a huge bank of Green's economisers at the rear. On the far wall below the red piping was a steam turbine for emergency stoker drive (a more unlikely combination I would be hard pushed to come up with). The power house complex contained a Belliss & Morcom reciprocating engine driving an alternator, a steam turbine fire pump, large Weir pumps, turbine circulating pumps, huge calorifiers and a steam turbine alternator set that was for emergency use and not run in. This latter is now at Markham Grange Nursery and generating in anger with export to the grid.
