Origin Energy has upgraded its 224-megawatt Quarantine gas peaking plant in South Australia. As a result of the upgrade, which involved the fitting of an aero-derivative unit, it will now take Origin just five minutes to supply power to the national electricity grid, down from 15 minutes previously. Origin executive Greg Jarvis says the flexibility of its gas peaking power stations will help to support the growth in electricity being derived from renewable energy sources.
