Synergen Peaking Units

Synergen Power is a peaking generator of 396 MW consisting of nine generating units located at four power station sites across South Australia. Synergen Power supplies power into the National Electricity Market at times of high demand, particularly on days of very high temperatures.

Synergen Power is jointly owned by ENGIE (72 per cent) and Mitsui & Co Ltd (28 per cent).  

Synergen Power also provides ancillary services to the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO), generation support for the transmission network and electricity derivatives to market participants as protection against pool price volatility.
