A $5.2 million overhaul wrapped up recently at the Wivenhoe Power Station near Brisbane as CS Energy continues a $71.4 million program of maintenance shutdowns this financial year.

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems was the major contractor for the two-month overhaul, with additional contractors carrying out specialised work including ABB, Schneider, ViPac, Berg Engineering and Crown Engineering.

CS Energy chief executive officer Martin Moore said each overhaul provided an economic boost to accommodation and other businesses in communities surrounding CS Energy’s power stations.

CS Energy’s overhaul program for 2015/16 has also included two projects at Callide Power Station near Biloela (July 2015 and October 2015).

The final shutdown for the year will be a major overhaul of Kogan Creek Power Station on the Darling Downs in April 2016.
