Gas Plant Glow

Gas plants light up the night near Port Campbell and the Great Ocean Road

The night time view of the Origin and TRU gas plants near the Great Ocean Road and the Twelve Apostles. The picture was taken about 1km from the plants on a main road. The glow of the flame is visible some 20km away.

All around the plants, for many kilometres, is black. It's not just the noise from these plants that is an impost on this part of the coast. In the post below Gary Goland talks about the failings of regulators in regard to noise etc. Apparently the Corangamite Shire insisted the Origin gas plant be cast in its position on one of the highest points in the district. Brilliant, really.
