Anglesea Power Station, Victoria (Australia)

Anglesea Power Station, Victoria (Australia)

Anglesea Power Station is located at Anglesea, in Victoria, Australia. It is coal powered with one steam turbine with a capacity of 150MW of electricity. The power station supplies almost 40% of the electricity used by the nearby Point Henry aluminium smelter, operated by Alcoa of Australia. The power station was brought online on March 20 1969. ["R. Arklay and I. Sayer" - 'Geelong's Electric Supply' - September 1970]

Anglesea draws its cooling water from six sub-artesian well bores, supplemented with rainwater. Anglesea is fuelled by brown coal from a nearby open cut mine, and transported to the power station along a 3km private road.
