The Gladstone Power Station is a world-class facility providing customers with safe, reliable, low-cost electricity. Since 1994, the station has been operated by NRG Gladstone Operating Services on behalf of Joint Venture participants.
Gladstone Power Station is Queensland’s largest, with a generating capacity of 1,680 megawatts. The station was sited to take advantage of seawater for cooling and to be near Central Queensland’s vast coal reserves.
The station’s six 280 megawatt turbogenerators each output 15,750 volts to transformers that convert the power to a level suitable for transmission at 132,000 or 275,000 volts.
