EnergyAustralia - Tallawarra B
EnergyAustralia is building Tallawarra B under a conditional approval from NSW Department of Planning with the condition that the plume is safe for aviation.
The Tallawarra B plume is an invisible, very vigorous, high energy plume. It will exit the stack at modelled temperatures of 633.7℃, average speed of 227 km/hr with modelled jet gusts in excess of 700 km/hr.
Tallawarra B requires an experimental ‘top hat’ called a ‘plume dispersion device’ (PDD) fitted to the top of the stack to force the plume sideways before it turns vertically upwards, in an attempt to make it safe for aviation.
