Castle Peak Power Station (Chinese: 青山發電廠) is the largest coal-fired power station in Hong Kong and one of the biggest in the world. The station consists of four 350 MW and four 677 MW generating units.
Castle Peak "A" Power Station was officially opened by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on 28 September 1982.
Castle Peak "B" Power Station was built by the Castle Peak Power Company, a joint venture between CLP and Esso. The first two (of four) units were inaugurated by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on 22 October 1986. <Read more ...>
Construction of the Tsing Yi Power Plant started in 1966, the first turbine was commissioned in April 1969. It was oil fired, a tank farm was built next to it. From 1968 onwards, five chimneys were set up. During the 1970's and 1970's, the plant (together with the Hok Yuen Plant) produced electricity for Kowloon and the New Territories, sometimes for Mainland China. <Read more ...>
I am putting together a list of past industrial sites (and some present ones) in Hong Kong, with links to the relevant Gwulo pages (or if there is no dedicated Gwulo page for them yet, Public Works Department Annual Reports). There is already a very comprehensive list on the Industrial History of Hong Kong website - my list is just trying to group together relevant Gwulo pages and PWD sources. For now, I have not included sites such as godowns, wharves, piers, electricity substations, etc as they are so numerous that it would be very time-consuming task. <Read more ...>
On Flickr, this photo is assigned to the year 1967. A comment says: "I'm quite sure is Provident Centre, which was completed in 1983."
I agree with that, as two of the three chimneys of the North Point Power Station are wrapped, certainly for demolition. The power station was
decommissioned in 1979. So probably this photo was taken in 1981-82..
