Ramsey Power Station plan decommission

Sat, 09 Feb 2019

Manx Utilities has announced that it will decommission the diesel generator engines currently installed at Ramsey Power Station.

It follows a third-party analysis of the high voltage electricity network supply to Ramsey and the North of the Island.
The engines and generators installed in Ramsey have not been operated in recent years and are now 50 years old.

The exhaust stacks will be dismantled in early 2019 with the diesel engines and fuel storage tanks removed thereafter.

The site will remain an operational Manx Utilities site with high voltage electrical equipment providing essential power distribution for the North.
