Ararat Terminal Station – Synchronous Condenser

Currently in development phase, AEO will be extending the Ararat Terminal Station to include a synchronous condenser (syncon).

A syncon is a device similar to a large motor that is used to regulate voltage in the network and stabilise the power system in the event of unexpected faults. It will be housed in a building directly adjacent to the existing facility.

The project has recently been granted planning approval and will soon be transitioning into the construction phase.

This page will be updated before construction commences with further details on the project and information relevant to the community.
