Since the FGD plant has already been driven by WEG machines, proving their reliability on this site, WEG was an ideal candidate for supplying the fan motors for the new SCR process.

E.ON has guaranteed the future viability of its Ratcliffe-onSoar coal fired power station by installing a new selective catalytic reduction (SCR) emission control facility to reduce emissions.

Ratcliffe Power Station is recognised as one of the most efficient coal fired power stations in the UK and with the WEG motors delivering a confirmed 97.6% at peak efficiency they can only add to this reputation.
