A key part of Worsley’s efficiency and growth expansion project.
Located near Collie, 189km south east of Perth, the Worsley Multi-Fuel CoGen Plant is a key part of the BHP owned Worsely Alumina Refinery and their Efficiency and Growth Expansion Project.
Work on the new multi-fuel cogeneration power plant has been completed. The construction of the new power plant has lifted Worsley’s annual alumina production capacity from 3.1 million to 4.7 million tonnes. The Worsley MFCG was declared a project of State significance and is expected to inject $1.2 billion annually into the Western Australian economy.
The two multi-fuel units that make up the cogeneration plant have the capacity to produce a total of 550 tonnes of steam an hour and 106MW of power. The steam is vital to the alumina refining process. Power excess to Worsley’s needs will be exported to the State electricity grid. The multi-fuel cogeneration units will primarily burn coal but will also be able to burn up to 30 per cent biomass (waste wood).
