Locations > Marina Power Generating Station
The Marina Power Generating Station, strategically located close to the centre of Cork City, initially started its life as a coal fired station but the discovery of natural gas off the coast of Cork in 1978 means it now operates as a modern, natural gas fired, combined cycle plant. It retains an interesting red brick structure and chimney which makes it seem like Cork’s own Battersea Power Station! Since its opening Marina has gladly facilitated visits by schools, third level colleges and organised groups. However, they do have a station to run so it is essential that you arrange your visit well in advance.
