• Clarke Energy to Provide Three of GE’s Jenbacher J612 Gas Engines to Upgrade Territory Generation’s Tennant Creek Power Station;
• Project Follows a A$75 Million Upgrade at the Owen Springs Power Station in Alice Springs Announced Earlier This Month;
• Projects are Part of an Electricity Cost-Reduction Drive, Spearheaded by the Northern Territory Government of Australia.

GE’s Distributed Power business today announced that Clarke Energy, GE’s authorized distributor of Jenbacher gas engines, is supplying three of GE’s high-efficiency Jenbacher gas engines to Territory Generation for an upgrade at its existing Tennant Creek Power Station. Earlier this month, GE announced it also is supplying 10 of its Jenbacher J624 gas engines to upgrade Territory Generation’s Owen Springs Power Station in Alice Springs. The two projects are part of the Northern Territory Government of Australia’s A$100 million investment in Central Australia.

Clarke Energy will supply and install three of GE’s high-efficiency, gas-fired, spark ignition Jenbacher J612 reciprocating gas engines, which will be located adjacent to the existing plant. This project, which is supporting an electricity cost-reduction drive, will provide an electrical output of 7.5 megawatts (MW), helping to increase the reliability and efficiency of power supplies and further reduce electricity costs in the Tennant Creek Township, which services communities as far as Ali Curung, 150 kilometers south of Tennant Creek.

“The Tennant Creek Power Station currently is made up of 20-40-year-old units that do not meet the requirements of the Tennant Creek load,” said Greg Columbus, managing director, Clarke Energy. “After a rigorous government tender process, we are pleased to be chosen once again to provide GE’s reliable, high-efficiency Jenbacher gas engine technology to help Territory Generation meet new government reforms for cost reduction by upgrading its Tennant Creek Power Station.”

In 2014, the Northern Territory Parliament of Australia implemented key reforms within the government-owned power generation authority. An outcome of the reform process was greater contestability to reduce the historically high cost of electricity paid by the Northern Territorians. This new business environment is driving local power corporations to find ways of reducing the operating costs of their power generation assets by adopting more fuel-efficient and reliable technologies.

“This upgrade will help us increase the reliability and efficiency of the power supply at the Tennant Creek Power Station, thereby helping to reduce electricity prices,” said Adam Giles, chief minister, Tennant Creek Power Station. “By implementing GE’s proven technology, we also will see a reduction in noise and emissions and a significant reduction in maintenance and operating costs.”

The fundamental design of GE’s gas engines provides numerous benefits. These include increased operational efficiency, greater reliability, reduced maintenance costs and enhanced capability to operate on gases with lower calorific value or unusual composition such as coal seam and coal mine methane gas, biogas, landfill gas, flare gas, coke oven gas and syngas from gasification processes.

“GE’s J612 gas engines feature enhanced heat recovery, stable combustion, lower emissions and increased efficiency,” said Bart Simes, regional manager for GE’s Distributed Power business. “The cost savings experienced as a result of the Tennant Creek upgrade will also be passed on to Territory Generation’s electricity customers.”

Territory Generation is the largest electricity producer in the Northern Territory, owning 582 MW of installed capacity and contracting an additional 40 MW from independent power producers for supply to its customers.
