     Carnarvon Tracking Station - Power House                                      Photographer unknown      
 

Power was supplied by eight diesel generators. Shown are 6 x Caterpillar D353 straight six-cylinder diesels each driving 250kVA alternators, and two Cat D398 vee-12 diesels of 500kVA each. Two of the smaller Cats shown were replaced by two more of the larger 500 kVA machines shortly after this photograph was taken.

Two distribution systems were employed, one for power for electronic equipment, the other for utilities such as air-conditioning, domestic needs and lighting.
