Fiddler's Ferry Power Station
On tour with David and Alan 6/10/2008.

Info from Wikipedia :
Fiddlers Ferry Power Station is the name of a 1989MW coal fired electricity generating power station located between Widnes and Warrington, England. The station is owned and operated by Scottish and Southern Energy plc. It has eight cooling towers (hence its nickname 'The Eight Towers') and takes its water requirements from the River Mersey alongside. Since the deep mines in the Lancashire coalfield closed, all its coal is either imported, or supplied from mines in Yorkshire. One of its cooling towers collapsed on Friday 13 January 1984, due to the freak high winds of that winter, but has since been rebuilt. The station was buit by the CEGB but was transferred to Powergen PLC after privatisation. The station, along with Ferrybridge Power Station, a 1995MW coal-fired station in Yorkshire, was then sold to Edison Mission Energy in 1999, sold on to AEP Energy Services Ltd in 2001 and both were sold again in July 2004 to Scottish and Southern Energy for £136m. Fiddlers Ferry is being fitted with an FGD (Flue Gas Desulphurisation) plant, to significantly reducing the emissions of sulphur oxides, one of the principal causes of acid rain. It also burns biofuels together with the coal. This work commenced in 2006 and is planned to be complete by the end of 2008. Imported Coal is supplied largely by train from Liverpool docks.
