Peel Diesel Power Station, UK

Manx Electricity Authority (MEA) commissioned the company to undertake a feasibility study into the development of a nominal 20 MW power station at Peel with potential for expansion to 40 MW.

The new development would cater for the demands created by retirement of old plant and anticipated load growth on the MEA system.

After completing the studies, which included an environmental impact assessment, the company assisted in preparing and submitting the planning application and – on receipt of approval and government assent – was appointed to carry out the engineering for the project.

Phase I involved installation of two 9.6 MW diesel engine generating sets and phase II added two more, bringing the total plant capacity to a nominal 40 MW. Throughout the development, particular care was taken to achieve low noise levels and meet UK environmental legislation for exhaust emissions.

The power station is equipped with a supervisory control system allowing both central control at Peel and remote control through a fibre optic cable from Pulrose power station some 16 km across the island. The power generated is fed into MEA’s 33 kV transmission system via overhead lines to St John’s substation.
