Water shortages shut power station

Now another 45pc reduction: It will now reduce generation by another 45 per cent of full load, with two of the four 350 megawatt generators being suspended. One unit will remain on standby and can return to service on 36 hours’ notice. "This will mean an overall reduction of 70 pet cent from full load," Gluer said.

No job losses: “There will be no Tarong Energy job losses as a result of the reduced generation and there will be no impact on the major outage schedules.” The reduction at Tarong will save about 22,000 megalitres of water over 15 months.
