VALES POINT POWER STATION
In 1998 Oracle were awarded the design portion of a LP Heater rehabilitation project for the NSW generating authority at their Vales Point Power Station. Valves Point (4 500MW coal fired (PF) units) is one of series of power stations in the Hunter Valley coals field of NSW. The station was completed approx 1975 and they had experienced a series of problems and failures with the LP feed water heaters. The contract awarded to Oracle covered the engineering investigation into these failures and the design of modifications to improve the efficiency and life of the units.
The photographs show the heater at various stages during modification and rehabilitation.
