The Kwinana alumina refinery was commissioned in 1963 as a single unit refinery then expanded to six units by 1973. The integral powerhouse consists of medium pressure boilers and back pressure turbines to provide the refinery's process heating and power requirements. Steam-power balance is achieved by minor import of electric power to the national grid.
