Gladstone Power Station
Gladstone Power Station is Queensland's largest coal-fired power station and is located at Gladstone on the central Queensland coast.
The 1,680 megawatt power station accounts for approximately 13 per cent of Queensland's installed electricity generation capacity and plays a pivotal role in the supply of electricity in central Queensland. Gladstone Power Station receives its primary fuel supplies from the Xstrata Rolleston and Anglo Callide coal mines.
CS Energy trades Gladstone Power Station's full generation capacity in the national electricity market as part of its larger portfolio. These trading rights were transferred to CS Energy on 1 July 2011 as a result of the Queensland Government’s Generator Restructure.
Originally built and commissioned by the State Electricity Commission of Queensland in 1976, the power station was sold to the Gladstone Power Station joint venture in 1994 to support the Boyne Smelter expansion.
Gladstone Power Station is operated and maintained by NRG Gladstone Operating Services.
