Part of the original Power Station suffered catastrophic failure as a result of fire.
West Tech proposed the purchase of Meekatharra Power Station which had been made redundant in 2015 and installing into the West Island footprint.
West Tech conducted the deconstruction, transportation to Perth and the refurbishment of the equipment.
The station was then transported to Cocos Island were West Tech conducted the installation and commissioning. The Power Station was officially opened by the then Honourable Member Barry Haase in May of 2016.
