Central Valve Steam Engine

Willans & Robinson

Built in 1901 at Rugby, this 140hp three crank compound engine was in service for 57 years.

Willans engines ran at 350 to 500rpm and could be direct-coupled to generators. In 1892 they accounted for 68% of all electricity generated in Britain, dominating this market until the advent of steam turbines.
