Caption: Industrial power station. This is the COGEN power station at ExxonMobil's Fawley Oil Refinery and Chemical Plant, Hampshire, UK. It burns gases from the oil processed at the refinery, and uses the hot exhaust gases to drive turbines (similar to the way a jet engine works). This generates power much more efficiently than a conventional power station. Further efficiency gains are made by passing the gases from the turbines through a heat exchanger to extract the heat from them. This heat is used to generate steam, which is then used in the nearby chemical plant. This dual production of electricity and steam make it a co-generating (COGEN) power station. This refinery and chemical manufacturing site is one of the largest in Europe.
