16MW North Star Power Station 11Kv

The Iron Bridge North Star Project Stage 1 required UON to develop equipment that was suitable for the harsh Pilbara environment. This project demanded that all the equipment be able to operate continuously without failure at temperatures up to 50°C. To ensure this UON was intimately involved in the design and construction of a new range of containerized generators: the Cummins Powered PP2000 and PP1250,which were the cornerstone of the efficient operation on the power station.

Project Name

16MW North Star Power Station 11Kv

Project Value

Not disclosed

Location

Pilbara, Western Australia

Duration

Jan 2014 – July 2014

Summary

The complete design and construction of the power station in a period of 6 months

Background Information

The Iron Bridge North Star Project Stage 1 required UON to develop equipment that was suitable for the harsh Pilbara environment. This project demanded that all the equipment be able to operate continuously without failure at temperatures up to 50°C. To ensure this UON was intimately involved in the design and construction of a new range of containerized generators: the Cummins Powered PP2000 and PP1250,which were the cornerstone of the efficient operation on the power station.

Key Success

The key success of the 16MW North Star Power Station included the UON designed installation on the proven modular system. This modular system was required to provide power generation at 415V with distribution at 11kV and the supply of equipment was in standard containers of 40’ and 20’ configuration. This allowed the diesel powered generators, transformers and switch room to be shipped on standard transport through the rough terrain to the site. The system allowed for efficiency during installation, transportation, operation and management

Equipment:

  • 5 x 1.6mw prime rated qsk 60 generators
  • 8 x 1.0mw prime rated generators
  • 4 x 150 000L fuel tanks
  • 1 x containerised switch room
  • 5 x 2.5mva transformers 415 v step up 11Kv (containerised solution)
  • 6 x 2mva transformers 415 v step up 11Kv (containerised solution)
  • cables cable ladder
  • fuel piping with transfer pump
