EnergyAustralia is proposing to build a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) power station at our existing Yallourn site in the Latrobe Valley in Victoria.
Meeting new energy needs
The proposed power station will be capable of base load generation, producing approximately 1000MW – the equivalent of meeting the energy needs of 400,000 households each year.
Not only will it help secure Victorian energy supply to meet household and business energy demand, it will also support industry in the local region by creating jobs during the construction and operational phases of the project.
What will it look like?
The project will include:
- a natural gas fuelled CCGT power station
- cooling towers
- control room and workshops
- a gas receiving station
- a switchyard
- electrical infrastructure including substation, generators, transformers and switchgear
The site will connect to the Longford-Dandenong mainline gas pipeline using 6.5km of pipeline, with an easement of approximately 30 metres.
It will connect to the existing Hazelwood-South Morang transmission line, requiring about 10km of electricity transmission line, with an easement of approximately 60 metres.
