About this event

Fawley Power Station was originally a 2GW oil fired power station and the most efficient of its kind in the UK. Commissioned in 1971, it was both technologically innovative and architecturally striking, in particular the glazed turbine hall and circular control room.

The visit will include a tour of the power station, including turbine hall, and a talk about its design, the station’s history and the future for the site.

The tour will be hosted by Russell Morgan and Martyn Thomas, on behalf of the power station’s owners, Fawley Waterside Limited.

Russell Morgan - Site Manager
Russell’s career began at both Marchwood and Fawley power stations, before moving into the metal, mining and petrochemical construction industries in the UK and overseas.  He returned to Fawley in the 1990s and now oversees all activities on the site, contributing to its future development.

Martyn Thomas - Mechanical Engineer
Martyn has 44yrs Royal Naval experience in marine engineering, facilities management and power station engineering management.  He has spent the last nine years at Fawley Power Station and is directly involved in the decommissioning of the site’s plant and apparatus, as well as contributing to its future development.
