Aghada Power Station was built close to the entrance of Cork Harbour in order to use gas discovered in the nearby Kinsale Gas Field. The station started operating in 1980 and was extended in 2010. It is one of the most efficient and cleanest plants in Europe and operates to the highest standards. In this presentation you will discover how electricity is generated in Aghada.
