Approval granted for variation of electricity generation licence – Iberdrola Australia Energy Markets
07 Sep 2022
On 31 August 2022, the Commission varied Iberdrola Australia Energy Markets Pty Ltd’s electricity generation licence, authorising the takeover of operations of four 34.22MVA GE TM2500 Gas Turbine Generators, currently licensed under the related entity Iberdrola Australia SAGT Pty Ltd, increasing the total generation capacity by 127.5MW. The variation also approved the change of location of the generators from Lonsdale to Bolivar.
As Iberdrola Australia SAGT Pty Ltd’s licence will no longer authorise any operations, the licence will be surrendered and removed from the Commission’s register.
The Commission assessed this application against the relevant provisions within the Electricity Act 1996 and the Essential Services Commission Act 2002 and determined that all relevant criteria under those Acts have been satisfied. It has therefore approved the application.
