Kilroot power station is a coal and oil power station on the east coast of Northern Ireland, UK, commissioned in 1981. The station has installed capacity 513 MW in dual-fired boilers (coal and heavy fuel oil), along with 142 MW in four Open Cycle Gas Turbines (OCGT) and 10 MW of battery energy storage from the Kilroot Advancion Energy Storage Array, which is the only grid scale operational battery storage unit in Ireland with a potential to install a further 30-100 MW of battery storage. Together with EP Ballylumford, it secures over 60 % of Northern Ireland‘s electricity demand.
