Why is the Power Station Not Back on Line Yet?
May 6, 2005
One answer to this question is: asbestos. That “new-age”building material of the 60’s has proven to be an obstacle during this outage. With the power station being built over 35 years ago, it has long been known that a lot of asbestos was used in construction. A three year program to remove as much asbestos from the station as possible was implemented in the run up to the outage. Unfortunately we have continued to discover unexpected asbestos in work areas over the last week, which has required safe removal to protect workers’health...story>>

Anglesea Power Station Back on-line
May 14, 2005
The outage achieved technical completion on Wednesday May 11 with all systems operating and power generation synchronised with the state grid. With the project running several days over time, it has been a huge effort, with long hours put in and we appreciate everyone’s hard work. However, shortly after this milestone a tube leak was detected in the economiser rear pass wall, resulting in the power station being turned off. Because the power station is over 35 years old and several tens of kilometres of tubing make up the economiser wall it is common to discover tube leaks as part of getting the power station back on line...story>>
