Two Rolls-Royce Trent 60 gas turbines have entered service at Power and Water Corp.’s (PWC) Channel Island Power Station in Australia’s Northern Territory.
The units can provide up to 58 MW of electrical power when operating with water injection and, combined, have boosted the electricity generation capacity of the Darwin-Katherine power system by nearly 25%.
The turbines, which will be maintained under a Rolls-Royce Long Term Services Agreement, were installed within PWC’s program schedule and entered into commercial operation in November 2011. The first Rolls-Royce gas turbine electricity generating sets in Australia were installed in 1968.
