About the exemplary picture above: During the 2011 Queensland floods, some areas of the Oxley Creek STP in Rocklea were flooded, causing significant damage to the existing Jenbacher cogeneration engine and related plant that had been operating for over a  decade. Queensland Urban Utilities (QUU) opted to replace this equipment, and at the same time sought to replace the aging engines at the Luggage Point STP in Pinkenba. Two of GE’s Jenbacher J416 containerised generator modules were selected. This power plant can generate up to 2.2 MW of electrical output and a further 2.2 MW of thermal energy in the form of hot water used to warm the digest   Read More...
