Remote area electricity generation is being transformed through projects such as the West Kimberley Power Project (WKPP).

The project consists of the construction of five power stations, four fuelled by LNG, a 200-tonne-a-day LNG plant and associated transport infrastructure.

With an initial generating capacity of 61 MW, potentially growing to 92 MW over 20 years, the project will produce electricity for 27,000 people in the resource-rich, but remote West Kimberley region.

The project has been underpinned by a 20-year power purchase agreement between Energy Developments and Western Australian Government-owned, regional-power company Horizon Power.

Under the agreement, Energy Developments generates clean and reliable power for the communities of Broome, Derby, Camballin/Looma, Fitzroy Crossing and Halls Creek.

Projects based on LNG and CNG offer Energy Developments significant growth potential.

The WKPP has been an ambitious project which has provided a significant development for remote regions which have limited access to electricity grids or gas pipelines to service their energy needs.
