New 65MW Port Stanvac Site

With Adelaide experiencing its wettest winter yet in eighteen years, Cummins Power Generation have worked through the adversity with the new 65MW Port Stanvac project as it continues its advancement with commissioning planned to commence in early December 2010.

Following up with my previous article on this project, the 12 X QSK60G4 generator sets have been placed with the second of the three power houses – with power house one and two cooling towers installed, the two elevated 11KV switchrooms installed onto their footings and the two 66KV transformers placed within their containment areas.

Development is on the way as installing and connecting the kilometres of medium voltage cabling and control calling which is required throughout the site, footings for the control room and 11KV/415V station power transformers, the building of the third power house- all of which have already commenced.
