Kogan Creek – Australia’s Largest Single Unit Power Station

Kogan Creek – Australia’s Largest Single Unit Power Station

Penti-M Engineering are pleased to have completed another critical power station project this time for CS Energy and Kogan Creek Power Station which operates in Chinchilla, QLD.

Kogan Creek is the largest single unit power station in Australia at 750MW capacity and is also one of the most modern, efficient and technically advanced supercritical coal fired stations in the southern hemisphere.

The supercritical station means the boiler operates at a much higher temperature than conventional power stations and converts each unit of fuel into more energy. The plant is also very water efficient as it uses dry cooling technology. The result means clean and reliable power for over 1 million Australian homes!

As part of the scheduled $94 million and 79 day overhaul at Kogan Creek, Penti-M Engineering were engaged at short notice to perform urgent and critical machining operations for the LP Turbine blades for the turbine contractor, SIEMENS.

The Penti-M team have 30 years experience in specialised power station works and proudly deliver on high quality, quick turnaround and meeting both customer and contractor requirements to assist in getting the power station back online and operating at peak performance.

Penti-M Engineering are proud to provide overhaul, machining, metal spraying, manufacturing, specialised welding, CNC machining and onsite machining to all power stations across Eastern Australia and assist in providing clean, reliable and sustainable power for the future of Australia.
