Find out more about Torness

Torness power station’s management team is holding an open meeting in Dunbar to give members of the public a chance to find out more about it.

Station director Paul Winkle explained: “Earlier this year, EDF Energy announced a seven-year life extension for Torness power station, meaning it will continue to generate electricity until 2030.

“Given this commitment to the area and to being transparent and open about our operations, we thought this meeting would be a great opportunity for people to find out more about life at the station and talk to some of the people involved in its day-to-day running.

“Torness power station is an important part of the local community and Scotland’s energy infrastructure.”

There are 750 staff and contractors employed at the power station, and it also supports local businesses, schools, charities and other organisations. The power station has a five-star rated visitor centre and tour route, but the public meeting, being held at Hallhill Sports Centre in Dunbar on Thursday, October 20, at 6pm will give people the chance to find out even more about what happens there as it produces enough low-carbon electricity to power around 2.1 million homes.
