Fire at Balcas Energy Invergordon plant
A fire incident occurred at Balcas Energy’s Invergordon plant at approximately 21.45 on 11 April, 2020. All staff are safe and there are no injuries.
Automated fire suppression and prompt action by Balcas Energy staff quickly brought the blaze in a cooling hopper under control. Balcas Energy is enormously grateful to Invergordon Fire Service who quickly arrived at the scene and ensured that the fire was fully extinguished and that all adjacent areas were free from risk.
The Balcas Energy plant returned to electrical generation early on 12 April and supplies from the factory will not be subject to any further disruption.
