NSW 640MW Uranquinty OCGT project: estimated gas cost $4.13/GJ; plans to start late-2008

Posted by gasweek on 19 September, 2007

The Uranquinty project achieved State Government approval and was being developed by Wambo Power Ventures Pty Ltd, jointly owned by Babcock & Brown and ERM Group, according to ‘Fuel resource, new entry and generation costs in the NEM’, a report by ACIL Tasman for NEMMCO (27/3/2007).

Late 2008 start: If constructed, Uranquinty would be a 640MW OCGT (open cycle gas tubine) power station located at Wagga Wagga, NSW, and could be operating by late 2008. The site was located to take advantage of demand requirements in the region, as well as having the ability to source gas from both central Australia and Victoria.
