Great Yarmouth Power Station
Great Yarmouth is one of a new generation of highly efficient, gas–burning power stations, with the capacity to generate 400MW of electricity.
The station was commissioned in 2002 and is one of the UK’s most modern stations. It is well located, highly efficient and flexible, with the ability to start up and shut down quickly and reliably in response to changing demand. The power station generates enough power to supply a third of a million homes.
The station is powered by natural gas and uses the latest generating technology – combined cycle gas turbines (CCGT).
Great Yarmouth Power Station has a dedicated pipeline connecting the plant to the National Gas Transportation System just outside the Bacton gas terminal.
