The Pelican Point Power Station is located at Pelican Point, 20 km from Adelaide, South Australia and is operated by International Power. It burns natural gas in a combined cycle power station, comprising two gas turbines and one steam turbine, to generate up to 487 MW of electricity.
Construction began in 1999. The plant has two GT13E2 gas turbines manufactured by ABB (now Alstom). The plant, including steam turbine and HRSG was manufactured and constructed by ABB.
Fuel is supplied via the SEAGas pipeline, which runs from the Iona gas plant in Victoria to the Pelican Point power station.
Since 2002 International Power have allowed school and community groups to tour Pelican Point Power Station. The tours were originally designed and run by The Investigator Science and Technology Centre, and were taken over by SciWorld when the Investigator closed in 2006. Since January 2009 the tours have been operated by Mobile Science Education.
