Plant Status Report - Taloyoak - 503 April 2001
PowerHouse
The original powerhouse was a 23' x 34' pre-engineered, metal clad steel frame building
Which was completed in 1972. There was an extension added to one end of the building to house the water treatment facility. A module was placed at a considerable distance from the opposite
end and connected by salvaged material. These add-ons have given the whole place a
poor appearance and very bad crowding of equipment, which leads to a poor work environment. The line material Warehouse is a 10' x 20' pre-engineered, metal clad building constructed in 1973.
Storage Facilities
Storage Facilities consist of a small garage.
Office Facilities
The office is located in the transient house. There is one NTPC residence, bought
in 1976.

Fuel Tanks
Two x 455,500 litre skid mounted vertical welded tanks were installed temporarily in 1988. They were reinstalled in a metal berm in 1990. In 1987, one 20,000 - gallon tank, with metal berm, was installed close to the powerhouse. Tank and berm requires cleaning and painting.
Capital Work
The fuel spill in 1998 resulted in the purchase of a house, which has been converted into a warehouse and transient quarters.
Plant Forecast
Capacity of the plant is adequate for the next couple of years, unless future growth and
Government of the NT departmental transfers occurs.
Future Work
Plant exterior requires painting and plant ventilation requires upgrading.
