The return of Callide Power Station’s C3 unit has been delayed by another five weeks. The unit, part of one of Queensland’s large coal power stations, suffered cooling tower issues in late October and has been offline since.
Earlier this month, Paul noted that the unit’s original Return To Service (RTS) date of November 21st, 2022 was moved back to January 3rd, 2023. This has now been pushed back again to February 11th based on the current MT-PASA run published today.
The ‘expected’ return date of Callide’s C4 unit, which experienced a catastrophic explosion in May 2021, has not changed. The C4 unit is scheduled to be offline until April 7th, 2023.

The Callide C3 and C4 units are currently expected to be out until February and April 2023, respectively, according to the current MT-PASA run.
