Dáil Éireann Debate
118. Mr. N. Ahern asked the Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications the efficiency levels of production of electricity for the various generating stations and categories of fuel, namely water, turf, oil, gas and coal as currently operated by the ESB in mega watts per man per hour or other available criteria; if production from natural gas is the most efficient; the potential efficiency level of the new section of Poolbeg station; and the reason he has refused to sanction phases 2 and 3 of the new plant since the unions and management have agreed new productivity levels. [12110/95]
Minister for Transport, Energy and Communications (Mr. Lowry): In view of the commercial sensitivity of the information requested, it would not be appropriate for me to give details in relation to efficiency levels for each of the various generating stations currently operated by ESB.
