Australia’s first dual-fuel capable natural gas/hydrogen power plant to be built at the Tallawarra B Power Station in New South Wales
GE Gas Power announced the pilot project to power Australia’s first dual-fuel capable natural gas/hydrogen power plant at the Tallawarra B Power Station in New South Wales.
EnergyAustralia has ordered one of GE’s 9F.05 gas turbines to power the Tallawarra B Power Station to help enhance the reliability of the energy grid and help ensure New South Wales (NSW) energy consumers have continued access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable power prior to the closure of the Liddell coal-fired 1,680 MW plant. It will operate with as a peaker plant and will utilize partial loads of hydrogen to decrease its emissions footprint
The 316 MW Tallawarra B will be built in consortium with the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) company Clough and will be adjacent to EnergyAustralia’s existing Tallawarra A 435 MW gas plant. It will be the first large-scale gas-powered power station built in NSW in more than twelve years. GE will also supply a A78 generator, an exhaust stack, a generator step up transformer, and the Mark VIe control system and gas turbine accessories.
