    I know I know… two permission visits in four years… this is becoming a habit… last one I promise but having only been in Lostock which is all but empty I felt like a kid in a sweet shop in this place… mods please delete if not appropriate.

    On site with other engineers earlier in the month to look at the biomass domes and the escort we had said ‘’Bet tha’d like to go and look at the bashers, boilers and bines’’

    You jammy f****r, what a great set of pics though!
    Why at drax are the turbines set up like that? Not straight like they normally are in other places, is there a reason for this?

    Cheers all....

    Yeah, it only has six turbines (two cooling towers for each) but I think when it was originally constructed it had various backup gas turbines in there as well which havesince been decomissioned so no doubt was packed a little tighter

    That's a mighty fine report shanters. Very crisp shots. Really is special to see that, biggest electricity producer in the UK!

    No shame in a permission visit for here, I'd probably pay for the privilege.

    Cheers all.. much appreciated :D

    Indeed mate... 8% of the UK's electric comes out of Drax, only 12 days worth of fuel on site at anyone time with 100% of the supply coming from abroad so lets hope the big boats of coal and biomass keep coming ;)
