Facts about the Shand Power Station

  • This power station only has 1 unit that can produce 276 MW of power.
  • In 1993, Shand received a Power Plant Award from Power Magazine. This award was because of the power stations advanced environmental design

Advanced Environmental Design

Using state-of-the-art technology, the Shand Power Station runs as efficiently as possible. This includes:

  • Removing sulphur dioxide emissions using powdered limestone and water.
  • Tuning the boiler temperature and air quality. This lowers nitrogen oxide formations by up to 50% that cause acid rain and smog.
  • A water management system. Making sure no water's disposed of in the environment, except through evaporation.
  • A dry scrubber to trap over 99% of the fly ash. Helping to remove harmful pollutants before it ever leaves the power station's smokestacks.
