The Bell Bay Power Station is located on the Tamar River at Bell Bay, Tasmania, Australia. It has two 120 MW gas fired steam turbines and three 35 MW gas turbines, giving a total capacity of 345 MW of electricity. Bell Bay was commissioned in 1971 with a single 120 MW oil-fired Babcock & Wilcox, single drum, reheat boiler, supplying steam to an NEI Parsons steam turbine with hydrogen cooled generator. In 1974, a second near identical unit followed. Cooling water is via a once through cooling system, drawing water directly from the Tamar River. Three fuel oil tanks, each of 15,000 tonne capacity supplied the 600 tonnes of fuel oil per day required to run each of steam sets. Fuel oil was delivered by tank ship and discharged across a dedicated oil jetty at the site. The 110 metre tall stack is a distinctive feature in the area.
