The Oakey Power Station is a 332 MW power station located at Oakey on the Darling Downs in southern Queensland, adjacent to the Roma-to-Brisbane gas pipeline. The station is an open-cycle, dual liquid/gas-fired power station that typically operates during times of peak electricity demand when Queensland’s power needs are greatest. ERM Power led the development of Oakey with commissioning occurring safely and on time in December 1999. ERM Power owns 100% of Oakey and also operates and financially manages the power station. [1]
