Territory Generation is the largest electricity producer in the Northern Territory. We own 593 MW of installed capacity and contract an additional 5.1 MW from independent power producers, including 4 MW of solar power from Uterne in Alice Springs and 1.1 MW of reclaimed gas produced by LMS Energy from the Shoal Bay Renewable Energy Facility.
We own and operate eight power stations and 60 generating units, including a battery energy storage system in the Northern Territory. Our power stations are located at Channel Island, Weddell and Katherine (the Darwin-Katherine interconnected system); Ron Goodin/Sadadeen Valley and Owen Springs (the Alice Springs power system); Tennant Creek, Kings Canyon and Yulara (classified as remote power stations).
|Channel Island Power Station (CIPS)
||4 heavy industrial gas turbines, 3 aeroderivative gas turbines (2 dual fuel), 1 steam turbine
||CIPS commenced formal operations in 1987. It is Territory Generation’s largest power station and will continue to be the main source of electricity for the Darwin-Katherine Interconnected System (DKIS). The modular and renewable-fuel capable TM2500 is undergoing installation at the CIPS site and the ~35MVA Darwin- Katherine Battery Energy Storage System is being commissioned.
|Weddell Power Station (WPS)
||3 aeroderivative gas turbines
||WPS connects to the DKIS. Two of its gas turbines were commissioned in 2008, with the third commissioned in 2014.
|Katherine Power Station (KPS)
||4 industrial gas turbines (dual fuel)
||KPS has been operational since 1987 and functions as part of the DKIS.
Alice Springs region
|Ron Goodin Power Station (RGPS)
||6 reciprocating sets (6 diesel or gas fuel),
1 gas turbine (diesel or gas fuel)
||RGPS was commissioned in 1973. The station remains operational to provide capacity for the Alice Springs power system.
|Owen Springs Power Station (OSPS)
||13 reciprocating sets (10 gas, 3 diesel
or dual fuel), 1 industrial gas turbine (dual fuel)
||OSPS was commissioned in 2011 and upgraded in 2018 to

||The Sadadeen Valley BESS is a grid-connected modular lithium
iron phosphate battery system which has been in operation
since 2018 to support the Alice Springs power system. It resides
within the RGPS site.
|Tennant Creek Power Station (TCPS)
||13 reciprocating sets (8 gas, 5 diesel),
1 industrial gas turbine (dual fuel)
||TCPS was commissioned in 1975 and underwent a significant
upgrade in 2017. It services the Tennant Creek township and
surrounding communities as far as Ali Curung.
|Yulara Power Station (YPS)
||8 reciprocating sets
||YPS services the Ayers Rock Resort and the Yulara township.
The station is diesel fuel operation only. The station will
undergo significant changes in the coming years due to the
ongoing Yulara Energy Transition Initiative. The station has been
operational since 1983.
|Kings Canyon Power Station (KCPS)
||3 reciprocating sets (diesel)
||KCPS is the only commercial source of electricity in the Kings
Canyon area, servicing the Kings Canyon Resort and domestic
