Aberthaw Power Station
Aberthaw is a coal-fired power station, located in Wales, United Kingdom. With a capacity of 1550MW, Aberthaw can produce enough power to meet the needs of 1.5 million households.
We aim to maintain Aberthaw Power Station as one of the most efficient coal-fired power stations in the UK and we have completed a £230 million environmental upgrade in recent years. A 3MWe carbon capture pilot plant is also under construction at our Aberthaw site. This will test technology to capture the carbon dioxide from the flue gases and will form a vital part of RWE's research programme into carbon capture and storage technology. More information on the carbon capture plant is available here: Aberthaw carbon capture pilot plant.
