The boiler house at Longannet Power Station contained four boilers manufactured by Foster Wheeler John Brown. They were radiant, single 60″ drum, natural circulation boilers with a suspended construction. They contain 246 miles of tubing.
The pulverised fuel mill employed air-swept table/roller pulverisers manufactured by P. H. I. Engineering ltd, each capable of processing 40 tonnes of coal per hour. Each mill had 8 fuel bunkers with a total capacity of 4,000 tonnes per unit. Each boiler provided around 1800 tonnes per hour of steam at a pressure of 168 bars and a temperature of 568°C to the turbo-generator sets.
