Shoreham Power Station at Shoreham Harbour in West Sussex, was built on the site of the former Brighton ‘B’ power station.
Opened in summer 2000, the ScottishPower site has a capacity of 420 MW and can generate enough electricity to supply 420,000 homes.
The station uses a gas turbine along with a steam turbine and generator and represents one of the more efficient forms of thermal electricity generation. The flexible plant usually operates at base load - running its turbines continuously - to meet the south coast’s energy needs.
Shoreham Power Station operates under an Environmental Permit that is granted and monitored by the Environment Agency. The station’s Environmental Management System is certified to the international standard ISO 14001.
