High voltage electricity is exported via transformers to provide base load power to Melbourne Water. The plant is designed to supply Melbourne Water with its electrical requirements. The engine/container package is designed to maintain full output to and including 400C. The generators are installed an acoustically lined building that also houses the engine control room in a separate room. The building and remaining plant is enclosed within a fenced compound. The station can be monitored and controlled utilizing the SCADA system.
