Pt Stanvac 65MW Diesel Peaking Power Station (2010 – 2011)
AMAR Group worked closely with the Cummins Power Generation, Energy Solutions Business construction and engineering team to assist in providing their client, Infratil Energy Australia a high performance 65MW Diesel Peaking Power Station.
AMAR Group responsibilities for this project included; initial engineering design input, installation and commissioning of the 66kV substation, construction temporary power, supervision of electrical installation, technical support and liaison with ETSA Utilities for the grid connection, AEMO requirements, validation testing and full commissioning.
This project consisted of thirty-six diesel generators capable of providing nearly 60MW of electricity into the national electricity grid. These generators are installed within six acoustically designed buildings, all containing auxiliary power and lighting systems, control systems and mechanical services. The 11kV alternators are connected to 11kV switchboards, which in turn are connected to 11kV/66kV power transformers connected to a 66kV switchyard and remotely controlled switching equipment. One 66kV circuit run underground to the nearby ETSA Utilities sub-station where the Power Station is connected to the 66kV electricity network.
This plant is capable of being fully online within five minutes and supplying nearly 60MW into the national electricity grid to help meet short-term peak load demand on the distribution network.
