Energy Developments Pty Limited continues to pioneer the combustion of Waste Coal Mine Gas (WCMG), an environmentally damaging and dangerous greenhouse gas, at its 63 megawatt (MW) Moranbah North Power Project in Queensland.

The power station was built on a turnkey basis under a separate construction contract with Clarke Energy. By leveraging the established operational capability at the German Creek Power Station, the Moranbah North plant began full scale operation in late 2008. In 2014 the Moranbah North Power Station was expanded by 18 MW. This expansion was underpinned by a 25 year extension of gas supply arrangements with Anglo American.

The expansion of the Project also enables EDL to provide network support services and substantial network capital savings in the Bowen Basin area under a two year Network Support Agreement (NSA) with Powerlink Queensland.

The successful completion of this expansion with no reportable occupational health and safety or environmental incidents over more than 35,000 hours worked and two months ahead of the original schedule highlights the Company’s position as Australia’s leading waste methane to energy generator.

Moranbah North is now producing at full capacity and successfully participating in the National Electricity Market.
