Overview

On 13 October 2021, AGL Macquarie Pty Limited (AGL) submitted an application to provide a closure date of 1 January 2022 for the Hunter Valley Gas Turbines (HVGTS).

AGL’s application states that HVGTS is an aged generator and is currently in an inoperable condition. HVGTS was previously used to provide system restart services for the Bayswater power station but AGL advise it is no longer required for this purpose.

The AER will now commence its analysis and targeted consultation and will publish its decision by December 2021.
