Hedland station powering the Pilbara

In Energy, Latest News

One of the most efficient power plants in Western Australia was opened in an event that welcomed a new era of energy for the Pilbara.

Using combined-cycle natural gas, South Hedland Power Station will deliver a safe and reliable energy supply to Pilbara residents well into the future while generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

The new power station, delivering 150 megawatts of the most fuel-efficient energy in the Pilbara, is the result of a successful joint initiative between the State Government and industry to meet the long-term power needs of the region.

An extensive procurement process funded by the State Government and driven by Horizon Power awarded the contract to build, maintain and operate the station to Canadian energy company, TransAlta.

This followed two years of negotiations, designed to deliver power to the Pilbara at the lowest possible cost to taxpayers.

Horizon Power is a foundation customer, and the new plant can be expanded to supply power to other commercial users from 2017 onwards.
