Lynemouth Power Station :: NZ3090

This is a privately owned power station, built in 1972 by Alcan to supply the adjacent aluminium smelter, although it also supplies to the National Grid. Essentially a coal-fired station, taking advantage of local coal supplies, it is also now burning biomass. Although now (2009) the smallest coal-fired unit in the UK, with a 420MW output, it is also considered to be the most thermally efficient. The buildings were designed by the internationally renowned firm of architects, Yorke Rosenberg & Mardall.
