This coal slurry burning power station was located on the south bank of the River Leven at Innerleven. The site has been cleared.
The power station was built on largely vacant land to the north of Methil Dock No 3. Approach was from Methil East Junction. The power station had a small yard of sidings on the south side. It was designed to burn coal slurry provided by the washery at Wellesley Colliery to the south (worked north from Methil Yard before running round at Kirkland Yard to reach the power station). Later the power station used slurry from Westfield Opencast.
It was mothballed around 1999, Westfield Opencast mining having ceased in 1998. It was demolished in 2010-11.
The sidings were home to Jeffray Wotherspoon's Class 26 for some time. Jeffray Wotherspoon - 26040
