The publication by AGL Energy of the short note about the transformer incident (and injured worker) at Liddell unit 3 yesterday prompted me to have a quick look, following on from the volatility this week.
Liddell power station
A quick look at a spike in NSW price this afternoon above $3,000/MWh due to a number of different factors … including a trip of unit 3 at Eraring coal-fired power station.
A short article providing access to the much-talked-about report.
Comments by the Brett Redman (CEO of AGL Energy) about the poor performance of Liddell Power Station, as reported in the media, prompted me to open up the Generator Statistical Digest 2019 to have a quick look.
Some thoughts about some important questions we should be asking, to follow on from AGL’s announcement last Friday in relation to Torrens A (linked to Barkers Inlet and Loy Yang A2) and also about Liddell.
AGL released its investor presentation yesterday – several people flagged the availability stats within the presentation (they knew we were looking at aspects of reliability for our Generator Report Card 2018). Hence I take a brief detour and have a quick look.
