Repairs to sea wall
Repairs to sea wall

Work has been taking place at the former Methil Power Station site on the sea wall.

The repairs are being carried out by contractors on behalf of Scottish Power before the energy giant hands the site back over to Forth Ports.

Work has been going on at the site over the last few days, with a crane, diggers and dumptruck all visable.

A spokesman for Scottish Power said: “The work taking place is for repairs to the sea wall.

“These should be complete by the end of June. They are part of on-going works to restore the site before the handover to Forth Ports.”

The site has remained empty since the power station and it’s recognisable chimney tower were both demolished in 2011.

A spokesman for Forth Ports said: “There are no current plans for the site - the options for the site will be reviewed once it has been handed back by Scottish Power, which is due to happen at some point later in the year.”

A prominent part of the Levenmouth skyline since it was built as a sister-site to Ayrshire’s Barony Power Station in 1965, the power station was eventually decomissioned in 2000.
