Callide Power Station

Callide Power Station is situated 18 kilometres east of Biloela in central Queensland and uses coal-fired power generation to supply baseload electricity to Australia’s national grid. Callide Power Station is comprised of Callide B and the Callide Power Plant (Callide C).

Callide B Power Station was commissioned in 1988 and supplies reliable electricity to Australia’s national market.

The 810-megawatt (MW) Callide Power Plant (Callide C) was commissioned in 2001, doubling the generating capacity of the Callide site. Callide C was the first supercritical coal-fired power station in Australia. CS Energy owns Callide C in a 50/50 joint venture arrangement with InterGen.

CS Energy also owns the Callide A Power Station, which was originally constructed in 1965. Callide was the site of the Callide Oxyfuel Project, which was decommissioned in 2015/16 following a successful two-year demonstration of carbon capture technology.
