Kogan Creek Power Station

A solution to troublesome coal soot? Done and dusted.

Case study overview

Kogan Creek is one of western Queensland's largest coal-fired power stations. The nature of their operations means they have to manage on-site clean-ups from dust to small pieces of coal.

The problem

Turning coal into power requires a lot of handling. And the more coal is handled, the more it breaks down – creating coal fragments and soot. It's a health and safety nightmare that can also clog up important machinery.

Kogan Creek Power Station needed a way of removing dust and fragment overflow from their coal conveying system – and prevent it escaping into the station's surrounding environment.

What SpillPro did

SpillPro does not manufacture products specifically intended for coal soot removal.

So we had to get creative.

SpillPro PACS systems can recover a wide range of liquids, oils, sludge and solids. As an inventive solution, we supplied Kogan Creek with this system to help them keep their operation floor in a safe and clean condition – and prevent dust and fragments clogging up important equipment.

Benefits to Kogan Creek Power Station

  • Used daily to clean up all spills on site
  • Improved operation of sumps and drains
  • Fewer machine breakdowns, saving time and money
  • Improved occupational health and safety
  • Reduced environmental impact on pond

“We love the PACS 1000 and the operator has taken full ownership of the unit – and treats it as his baby. He utilises it daily and it has made his job so much easier.”
