Smaller power stations
The three gas turbines at our Mungarra Gas Turbine Power Station have the capacity to produce 112MW of electricity.
Built in 1990 and located 50km south east of Geraldton, Mungarra Gas Turbine Station is fired by gas. The power station is connected to two transmission lines which supply electricity to Geraldton and the Mid West district.
Gas for the power station is supplied from the Dampier-Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline.
The power station is controlled remotely from the East Perth Control Centre.
Our power station in West Kalgoorlie has two gas turbines and runs on distillate. The power station has a capacity of 60MW and is run during times of peak demand and emergencies.
Geraldton Power Station has one gas turbine and runs on distillate. It has a capacity of 21MW and is used during peak summer demand.
Worsley, near Collie, is a gas-fired co-generation plant which produces 120MW of electricity.
Verve Energy is a partner with Origin Energy, forming the South West Co-generation joint venture, which owns the co-generation plant at Worsley and provides steam to the existing Worsley alumina refinery and electricity into the South West Interconnected System.
The co-generation plant runs on a gas turbine fed by natural gas brought from the North-West through the Dampier to Bunbury pipeline.
