Caption: Coal supplies for a power station. View, from the top of one of the chimneys, of the conveyor belts carrying coal from the stockpile (right) to the bunker house of a coal-fired power station. The coal is burnt to generate electricity. This is the Drax power station near Selby, North Yorkshire, UK. This view looks south-west from the main chimney. At 259 metres, it is one of the tallest structures in the UK. As of 2006, Drax is the largest, cleanest and most efficient of the UK's coal-fired power stations. It can burn 36,000 tones of coal a day to produce 4,000 megawatts of power, around 7% of the UK's electricity needs. It was built from 1974-1986. For a view of the chimney, see T190/454.
