Moneypoint is one of Ireland's largest electricity generation stations. The facility is located on the Shannon Estuary, near Kilrush, County Clare. It was constructed at a cost of more than £700m, in one of the largest capital projects in the history of the Irish State. It is currently undergoing an environmental retrofit and systems upgrade at a cost of over €365M.
Moneypoint is one of the most efficient generating stations of its kind in the world, with all its operations computerised and automated. The station operates almost exclusively on coal, making it unique in the context of Irish electricity production.
