Going through old stuff while updating my website, I realised that I'd completely forgotten to do a report on a couple of Inverkip visits. Found some stuff that I don't think has been seen before. So this is from December 2008:

A couple of night shots:

Into the turbine hall, and in the middle of the night all the lights were on, which was a bit unnerving.

The corridor to the engineering workshops was open, so went for a look - this is the gantry crane over the workshop floor:

Workshop stores:

More general 'kip odds and sods:

And another new room - the backup generator room, with three big green diesel generators.

Something is definitely happening - generators running, I presume because they've disconnected from the grid. No signs of anything major yet, though wouldn't expect that for quite a while - it'll take ages stripping out before they get anywhere near anything structural.

A couple of pictures from the pumping house, while I was there:
