10 new high-efficiency natural gas-fired generation units have arrived in Alice Springs. The 10 new 4.1MW GE Jenbacher engines have been shipped direct from Austria and replace the capacity of the ageing Ron Goodin Power Station.
The investment of more than $75 million realises a number of major environmental benefits as the engines operate with reduced carbon emissions and fuel consumption, as well as less noise and odours. Importantly, the new engines also have the capacity to better support a future transition to renewable energy.
