I would assume that the boilers were constructed by the UK B&W, now trading under the name Doosan Babcock, rather than the US Babcock & Wilcox. I have no evidence for this other than common sense, however, so I'll leave the link as it is for now. If someone could find out and make sure it's correct, that would be useful.

- You're right, the boilers were built by Babcock & Wilcox UK, renamed Babcock Power Ltd in the 1970s, and now trading as Doosan Babcock --Sunbite (talk) 09:21, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
What are the C02 Emissions of this power station
What are the CO2 emissions from this power station?
E.ON doesn't say, but it does provide the information to allow it to be calculated.
For its renewable site at Scroby Sands wind farm it says that it "produces power for 30000 homes, saving the emission of 67802 tonnes of carbon dioxide" (and also nearly 600 tonnes of sulphur dioxide and nearly 200 tonnes of oxides of nitrogen each year). This allows us to calculate that each home is equivalent to 2.26 tonnes CO2.
And that Ratcliffe is 2000 MWhours, which one can assume is enough to supply 1,500,000 homes.
So... 1,500,000 * 2.26 = 3,390,000 tonnes CO2.
Is it still correct to say that "a number of environmental protests have been associated with the plant" in the introduction? It's been 5 years since there were any environmental protests there, and other coal power stations have been targetted, which don't have the same line in the introduction. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 14:30, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
