Explosion Causes Outage.
An explosion at Origin’s Mortlake Power Station in Western Victoria has caused an outage.
In a statement, the company says a generating unit experienced an electrical fault early Monday morning, activating the unit’s fire detection system.
No one was on site at the time of the incident as the site can be operated remotely.
There was a couple of reports from people who heard a loud bang at the time the incident was reported.
The CFA attended the scene and gave approval for Origin to access the site for their investigations.
Origin is undertaking an investigation to determine when the unit can be returned to service.
