Lynemouth Power

Lynemouth Power is located in the Northumberland coastal community of Lynemouth and has generated electricity from coal since 1972. The plant was originally built, owned and operated by Alcan with the purpose of providing safe and secure energy for the production of aluminium at the adjacent Lynemouth Smelter.

Our exciting plan is to convert the power station from coal burn generation to biomass. On completion, the power station would be able to supply the National Grid with up to 395 megawatts of low carbon electricity. Their 135 employees each have an important role to play in generating safe and sustainable energy.
