Kogan Creek Power Station
Kogan Creek Power Station was officially opened in 2007, making it the newest addition to CS Energy's diverse power portfolio.
The coal-fired power station, located in the western Darling Downs near Chinchilla in Queensland, can provide up to 750 megawatts of baseload electricity - enough to power almost 1 million Australian homes.
Kogan Creek Power Station contains the largest single generating unit in Australia and has one of the lowest environmental impacts of any coal-fired power station nationwide, with low levels of water consumption and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
The neighbouring Kogan Creek Coal Mine supplies coal to the power station via a four kilometre overland conveyor belt. CS Energy owns the mine and Golding Contractors operates it on our behalf.
The power station is also the site of the Kogan Creek Solar Boost Project, which will showcase how renewable and conventional electricity generation technologies can be integrated. CS Energy will install a solar thermal addition at the power station to increase its capacity and improve plant efficiency.
