Australian town in on-site power rental deal

Horizon Power’s Short Term Power Project near the remote Pilbara mining town of Onslow in Western Australia is using three containerised GE J320 gas engines in a temporary on-site power project.

Supplying the town with 3 MW of power for local operations since January, the deal was struck by Clarke Energy. The location of the project is within Onslow Salt’s mining lease and adjacent the existing Onslow Electric Power (OEP) power station approximately 5 km from Onslow town centre.

With the local Onslow population forecast to increase, Horizon Power requires additional power generation at the existing OEP to meet forecast electricity demands until a new power station and infrastructure is constructed by Chevron Australia.
