Tallawarra Power Station is a state-of-the-art combined cycle, natural gas power station located on the shores of Lake Illawarra in New South Wales.

Tallawarra Power Station


Tallawarra is one of Australia's most environmentally efficient, large-scale gas-fired power stations. It is a combined cycle station with fast-start capability, which produces less carbon emissions than conventional coal-fired power stations. The gas-fired power station’s generation capacity is 435 MW – which is enough power to supply up to 200,000 homes. Before the Tallawarra gas-fired power station commenced operations in January 2009, the site was a 320MW coal-fired power station which operated between 1954 and 1989. 

Tallawarra is committed to supporting sustainable environmental practices in its operational processes and to providing a safe and healthy working environment for employees, contractors, suppliers and the general public.
