Probe starts into South Australia generators deal

April 24, 2018


South Australia’s newly elected Liberal state government is investigating a deal by the former Labor administration to procure nine backup diesel generators as part of an AUD550 million ($423m) energy plan.


Former state premier Jay Weatherill announced last year the plan to buy nine dual-fuel GE aeroderivative TM2500 turbine gensets through GE’s US partner, APR Energy, to provide backup power to support the grid during summer.


Vickie Chapman, the Liberals’ attorney-general, has appointed a special investigator to compile a detailed report by the end of June this year.


Until then, the South Australian government said it would keep to the existing leasing arrangements for the generators.
