Abstract

National Power is an electricity generating company recently formed as a consequence of the privatization of the electricity supply industry in the United Kingdom, major reorganization is underway within the company in order to improve ways of working and to reduce manpower costs. With a view to reducing fuel costs and ensuring security of supply, preparations are being made to use a range of sources. The introduction of combined Cycle Gas Turbine Technology and the use of natural gas in new generating plant is part of this strategy. It is also seen as a way of meeting the company`s environmental obligations. Trials are being conducted into the commercial and environmental implications of using a relatively new form of fuel, orimulsion, an emulsion of bitumen and water. These developments reduce the amount of coal required. Imported, price competitive, coal with a lower sulphur content than British coal will form an important contribution to supplies. A significant reduction in sulphur dioxide emissions is expected as a consequence of the operation the flue gas desulphurization equipment currently being installed at the Drax coal-fired station. Planning consent to build a wind farm in Cornwall has been sought in order to test the economics and  More>>
