A man died after having suffered significant burns in most of his body in an explosion at a major center in Victoria.
The initial reports indicate that the 50-year-old Yallourn electrician employee was working at a generating unit after an outage at 16:00 yesterday.
It is believed that a high voltage voltage breaker exploded and the man suffered serious injuries as a result of large-scale burns and lower body.
Ambulance Victoria said the man was in critical condition when the paramedics arrived and was taken by helicopter to the hospital but died Tuesday afternoon.
Investigators who work safely at Victoria are now examining the circumstances of the incident.
A spokeswoman for Energy Australia, who owns the plant, said the man's death sparked labor.
"He was a Latrobe Valley locality and a popular and laborer who was with us for three decades. Everyone on the site was deeply upset about the incident," the spokesman said.
"A full investigation will be made, but now our main concern is to make sure that our family and people receive the support they need."
The Yallourn power plant is a massive complex of six coal-fired power plants that provides one-fifth of Victoria's energy requirements and is located in the Latrobe Valley of Victoria.
