Tauhara is a low carbon power station, with a very low carbon emission rate. In comparison, a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine emits 8 x as many carbon emissions for each unit of electricity generated, and coal plants up to 19 x more than Tauhara is projected to. Tauhara will produce 1,420 GWh of electricity per year, which is around 3.5% of NZ’s electricity and enough to power 195,000 households. Construction began in early 2021 and is expected to be complete and operational in 2023.
LFF New Zealand was chosen to supply the stainless steel piping package for this prestigious project, through its extensive qualified supply chain and local industry knowledge.
