In illustration 1 above, we see a tall person (6 foot) standing alongside the 9 gas turbine generator sets and their associated exhaust stacks along with the steam turbines and cooling towers in the distant-right view

In illustration 2 above, a couple are seen standing outside the perimeter security fence which is 42 metres away from the gas turbines

In illustration 3 above, we see a gas turbine generator set (excluding steam turbine generators and cooling towers) when compared directly alongside a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

In illustration 4 above, the entire Canberra Technology City site (including its Galileo Connect "modules" along with the power station's generators) dwarfs Parliament House when compared directly alongside

In illustration 5 above, the entire Canberra Technology City site is shown for comparison to a semi-trailer. The GC1&2 "modules" (the 5 pairs of foreground buildings) are over 60 metres in length, almost 30 metres wide and are over 20 metres tall and the 5 x GC2 buildings contain air conditioned office floors
