Hackney Power Station
|Hackney Power Station|
|Operator(s)||Central Electricity Generating Board|
|Thermal power station|
|Nameplate capacity||92 MW|
Following nationalisation a 'B' station was built, coming to use between 1954 and 1957. The B station was closed on 25 October 1976 with a generating capacity of 92 MW. It has been partially demolished, a sub-station remaining in part of the original buildings.
Coal was originally shipped up the Navigation from the Thames. However, in later years, as lighterage declined, up to thirty lorries per day transported coal to the station; the station was isolated from the railway system by the Lea and Hackney Marshes.
