Trent 60 Turbines Powering PWC’s Australian Station
Two Rolls-Royce Trent 60 gas turbines have entered service at Power and Water Corp.’s Channel Island Power Station in Australia’s Northern Territory.
The units each provide up to 58 MW of electrical power when operating with water injection. Combined, the turbines have boosted the electricity generation capacity of the Darwin-Katherine power system by nearly 25%, Rolls-Royce said.
The units, which will be maintained under a Rolls-Royce Long-Term Services Agreement, were installed within Power and Water Corp.’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.
Power and Water Corp. provides electricity, water supply and sewerage services to almost 80 000 customers across the Northern Territory.
