Intergen Completes Financing Of Callide Power Plant In Australia


"When it enters commercial operations, Callide C will be the lowest marginal cost generator in Queensland and among the lowest in the Australian market. Callide C will also be the cleanest coal generator, due to the installation of leading-edge boiler technology that is the first of its type in Australia. Adding Callide C to our Australia portfolio will significantly enhance our competitiveness in the Queensland and National Electricity Market," said Carlos Riva, President and CEO of InterGen.

Callide C is a two unit (2x420 MW) facility presently in construction under a fixed price lump sum contract, with a consortium that includes Mitsui, Toshiba, and IHI Engineering. Coal will be sourced from the adjacent Callide coal fields.
