Berrimah Power Station is located in Berrimah, an industrial suburb of Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia.

The Berrimah Power Station was built and commissioned in 1979 after a number of faults with the Stokes Hill Power Station.[1][2]

Its purpose is and has always been for emergency and standby needs. It is fuelled by kerosene. Originally, it had 30MW capacity (3 x 10MW) but as of February 2012, only one unit is still operational, with the other two having been decommissioned.[3]
