Kwinana Power Station, Western Australia

Kwinana Power Station is a power station in Kwinana, Western Australia. It has six coal powered steam turbines and one gas turbine that together generate a total capacity of 901 MW of electricity.

The station was originally built in 1970 as an oil burning power station, but was later converted to coal due to the rising price of oil. A 21 MW gas turbine was added later.
