MILLMERRAN POWER STATION

Millmerran Power Station is an 850 MW black coal fired power plant located approximately 100km west of Toowoomba in southern Queensland. Commissioned in 2003, it is one of the most energy efficient, reliable and environmentally advanced coal fired projects in Australia. Coal is sourced exclusively from the Commodore open cut coal mine, located adjacent to the power station – allowing for low cost, consistent, high quality feed product for the plant.

Utilising supercritical boiler technology and low NOx burners, Millmerran is a base load operation, configured with 2 x 425 MW units. This configuration allows for continuous production, year round, even when one unit is offline for maintenance.

Millmerran draws recycled waste water from Toowoomba’s sewage treatment plant, and utilises air cooled condensers, which reduce water consumption as much as 90% over the traditional cooling towers utilised at other power stations.

Millmerran Power Station is operated by Millmerran Operating Company, a subsidiary of InterGen. InterGen is a global power generation firm with 13 power facilities in operation, representing a total generation capacity of 8,073 MW (6,401 net equity MW). InterGen’s plants are located in the UK, the Netherlands, Mexico and Australia.

 

APPLICATIONS

Flyash, and other coal combustion products are produced when burning black coal in the furnace of a coal fired power station.

Flyash is a fine grey powder that is entrained with flue gases as they exit the boiler. The Millmerran Power Station uses baghouse filters to capture the ash before the flue gases reach the chimney stack. Flyash in mainly utilised in concrete and cement production. It acts as a supplementary cementitious product which improves the strength, durability and workability of concrete.

Bottom Ash is the ash that falls to the bottom of the boiler. It is lightweight and of a coarse sandy texture. Bottom ash is mainly utilised in the production of lightweight masonry blocks, in fill applications and as a partial replacement for sand in aggregates and horticultural mixes.
