Not much of a report as the place is under demolition, all the out buildings have now been destroyed only leaving the cooling towers, apparently they will be going in the space of 4 months as they have to take them down bit by bit.

History

220px-Ferrybridge_power_station.jpg


Construction of the station began in 1959, it being built as a prototype for all the large modern power stations in the UK. It was commissioned between 1963 and 1965. It contained 2 generating sets powered by coal, and had a gas turbine set using an industrial static version of a Rolls-Royce Avon aero engine with a capacity of 14.9 MW. On 7 January 1973 four workmen died. The CEGB was put under investigation for breaches in safety provisions but they were found to have all died accidental deaths.
