Rottnest Island Power Station Generator Upgrade.
Westralian Diesel successfully tendered for the generator upgrade at the Rottnest Power Station.
The existing Cummins KTA19 generator, including the radiator and exhaust muffler were decommissioned and removed from the island.
Westralian Diesel sourced and supplied a new 500kVA QSX15-G8 Cummins generator.
A new cooling package was manufactured to suit along with the required pipe work, exhaust muffler and bellows.
Cable to the switch room was upgraded as required, along with a ComAp controller to integrate the new generator with the existing control system.
The geographical location of Rottnest Island presented some logistical challenges, but with some careful planning, the job was carried out and completed in the required timeframe.
