Snapper Point

Nexif Energy is developing a 154 MW gas turbine peaking power plant project located near Snapper Point at Outer Harbour on the Lefevre Peninsula about 22 km north-west of Adelaide, South Australia.

In August 2019, Nexif Energy entered into a long-term agreement with the Government of South Australia to lease and operate five (5) GE TM-2500 mobile aero-derivative gas turbines (each with 30.8 MW of net output). The turbines were relocated from their earlier location at the former Holden factory in Elizabeth, South Australia to the new Snapper Point power plant site. Construction commenced in Q4 2020 once all permits were obtained and the power plant commenced operations on 10 Jun 2022. Noise Management Plan and Community Engagement Plan for the project have been made available to the public. Environment Improvement Programme also has been approved.

Power from the project will be used to sell directly to the electricity market and to support the provisions of electricity off-take contracts from Nexif Energy’s existing 212 MW Lincoln Gap wind farm and its future 245 MW expansion.
