Cooling plant, Staythorpe
Modern plant relies on air circulation and radiators rather than the traditional towers which use water directly and create masses of vapour.
Staythorpe Power Station
This is a new gas-turbine power station on the site of the former Staythorpe A and B coal-fired stations which closed in 1983 and 1994 respectively. The new station comprises 4 Alstom turbine groups of 400 MW each, using gas-turbine primary stage, with triple-pressure heat recovery steam generator and steam turbine working on the exhaust gases. Although primarily designed for natural gas, the plant can be switched to using fuel oil. The station will be the second largest combined cycle gas turbine plant(CCGT) in the UK when it opens. It is owned by the German company RWE npower plc.
