The Queen Elizabeth Power Station consists of:[1]

  • one 60 MW and one 63 MW units (commissioned in 1959)
  • one 95 MW unit (commissioned in 1971)
  • six 25 MW Hitachi combustion gas turbines with once-through steam generators used to recover excess heat and reduce greenhouse gas emissions using combined-cycle technology(commissioned in June 2002)
  • three 36 MW Hitachi gas turbine units (commissioned 2010) at a cost of $240 million[2]

Boilers were supplied by Foster Wheeler and Babcock & Wilcox, and Once Through Steam Generators by Innovative Steam Technologies. The steam turbines were supplied by Brown, Boveri & Cie, English Electric and Hitachi.[3]
