The project is being developed and currently owned by Western Australia Biomass.
The project is expected to generate 322GWh electricity and supply enough clean energy to power 50,000 households. The project is expected to offset 280,462t of carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) a year. The project cost is expected to be around $150m.
The process of combustion will be adopted in this project to release the stored energy from the feed. Eucalyptus which is a kind of agricultural by-product will be used as a feedstock to power the project.
The project consists of 1 steam turbine.
The project construction is expected to commence from 2023. Subsequent to that it will enter into commercial operation by 2024.
Babcock & Wilcox Enterprises is likely to be the supplier of the steam boiler for the project.
