Work is continuing to restore Callide Power Station’s Unit C4 after it was damaged in May 2021.
Returning Unit C4 to service is a unique and complex project, and the current forecast return to service date is in April 2023.
The main components being replaced are the turbine, generator, generator transformer, automatic voltage regulator for the generator and the turbine governor.
Activity at site will ramp up in the second half of 2022 when replacement components for Unit C4 begin arriving from overseas.

Callide Power Station is comprised of two power plants, Callide B and C, each with two generating units (B1 and B2, C3 and C4).
CS Energy owns 100 per cent of Callide B and owns Callide C in a 50/50 joint venture (JV) with InterGen Australia.
