Given our prior coverage of the Callide C4 Catastrophe and recovery from 25th May 2021 onwards, worth a short article today to note that CS Energy posted this update on LinkedIn today, noting that the replacement generator transformer had arrived onsite:
There’s a video accessible at the link above.
On the CS Energy website, yesterday there was the Media Release ‘New C4 generator transformer arrives at Callide Power Station’ published that noted:
‘The Callide Unit C4 recovery project achieved an important milestone last week when the new C4 generator transformer was transported from the Port of Gladstone to Callide Power Station.
… The generator transformer arrived at the power station on the evening of 16 December.’
… and also included the video.
Two other quick notes:
(A) Expected Return to Service Date for Callide C4
In the Media Release above it notes:
’Returning Unit C4 to service is a unique and complex project, and the current forecast return to service date is April 2023.’
Back on 30th December 2021 I noted that this was the expected return to service date … so not changed over the past year.
(B) Engineer’s Report on the Cause?
I’ve not seen anything yet on the release of the Engineer’s Report into the cause of the explosion.
I have some vague recollection the target date for that was around the end of 2022, but I might be wrong on that one…?
