Mortlake Power Station
|Mortlake Power Station|
|Thermal power station|
|Primary fuel||Natural gas|
|Nameplate capacity||566 MW|
Construction of the $640 million power station began in 2008. It was initially due to be operational in 2010, and was completed in August 2012.
The plant is located on approximately 20 hectares of land with an extensive buffer zone around it. Although approvals were gained for approximately 1,000 MW (1,300,000 hp), the Mortlake Power Station was built to provide 566MW. It is adjacent to the existing Moorabool to Heywood 500 kV high voltage transmission line. The plant is supplied with natural gas via an 83 km dedicated underground natural gas transmission pipeline from the Otway Gas Plant near Port Campbell, as part of the offshore Otway Gas Project.
