About the Broome Power Station
The Broome Power Station, commissioned in 2008, took over from Horizon Power’s original station after 30 years of generation to provide the community not only with a 25% reduction in greenhouse gases, but to meet the needs of the growing Broome population.
A total of 17 Caterpillar gas generators and seven Cummins diesel generators are installed, creating an operating capacity of 43.2MW.
Broome Fuel Storage Facility
The Broome fuel storage facility is used to store LNG supplied via triple road trains from the Maitland LNG Plant, located 13km south west of Karratha. This facility stores and vaporises LNG for the Broome Power Station which are interconnected via a 13km high pressure MDPE pipeline.
