Flinders Power Partnership (Flinders Power) was the former operator of the Port Augusta to Leigh Creek Railway, the Leigh Creek Coalfield and the Augusta Power Stations.
In June 2015 Alinta Energy announced the closure of the Flinders Operations in South Australia following a strategic review to determine the future of the Augusta Power Stations and the Leigh Creek Mine.
Flinders Power has been planning the closure of the Flinders Operations since the announcement in June 2015. Coal mining ceased in November 2015 with the mine being managed through a transition phase until mine closure plans were developed and approved. Coal haulage of Leigh Creek coal stockpiles continued through until the last train operated on 27 April 2016. All remaining coal at the Northern Power Station was used until the 9 May 2016 at which time generation ceased.
Flinders Power prepared plans for the decommissioning, disconnection and demolition of the Augusta Power Stations and the rehabilitation of the site. All planned closure activities and obligations have been successfully completed. For more information or to read the plans click here.
