Generator, Fawley power station, Hampshire, UK. Inside the generator, the rotor (an electromagnet) turns inside the stator (made up of copper bars) and creates an electric current. This power station is powered by heavy fuel oil. It was built in the 1960s and began operation as a 2000 megawatt (MW) power station with four 500 MW generating units. Two closed in the 1990s and the station now has the ability to produce 1000 MW of power, which is enough to meet the needs of around 1 million people.
