Kemerton Power Station

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to construct a nominal 260MW peaking power plant, consisting of:

  • two open cycle air-cooled gas turbine generator sets;
  • standby liquid fuel storage (1.5ML of ultra low sulphur diesel); and
  • ancillary buildings and plant.

The plant will predominantly use natural gas, and will operate as a peaking plant for meeting short duration, high power demands for electricity. The plant may also operate as spinning reserve, using gas at a very low load in anticipation of high demand. The proponent intends to sell the power generated to Western Power on the SWIS.
