Port Hedland Power Station is a natural gas-fired power station in Western Australia. It consists of five 42MW gas-fired turbine units located in two separate locations: two units are located at the BHP Billiton hot briquetted iron (HBI) plant at Boodarie which has been decommissioned; and three units are located in a standalone facility at Port Hedland, connected by a 66kV transmission line. The assets are operated from a central control point allowing them to operate as an integrated plant and Port Hedland is connected to the North West Interconnected System (NWIS).

Three dual fuel units were commissioned in 1995; two additional units were subsequently commissioned in 1998
