Eraring Power Station is one of two coal fired electricity power stations with four 660 MW Toshiba steam driven turbo-alternators for a combined capacity of 2,640 MW. The station is located near the township of Dora Creek, on the western shore of Lake Macquarie, New South Wales, Australia and is owned and operated by Eraring Energy, a company owned by the New South Wales Government.
The first turbo-alternator was brought online in 1982, with the second and third in 1983, and the fourth in 1984. There are plans to upgrade generating capacity of each of the four turbines. The process of upgrading the control room to a fully digital system was completed in 2005. Eraring power station's capacity is 2,780MW and is being progressively upgraded to 4 x 720MW.
