|Bendeela Power Station
Bendeela Power Station is part of the Shoalhaven Scheme in the Illawarra district of NSW, a pumped storage hydro-electric scheme. Unit 2 at Bendeela Power Station required a major overhaul.
PPI was awarded this contract after another supplier had failed to provide an acceptable level of service on an earlier overhaul of Unit 1.
The scope of work included dismantling, inspection, repair and reassembly of the pump/turbine, supply and installation of various items of ancillary equipment and generator bearing inspections. Significant on-site machining repairs were required to major components, along with a substantial amount of corrosion repair.
For this project, PPI worked with our partner KPS to provide the site labour force and technical oversight of the works.
The overhaul was completed successfully and returned to service., and the unit met the performance guarantee requirements of the specification.
