Background

EnergyAustralia acquired 116-hectares in 2010 as a potential gas-fired power station site.[3] The project has a possible second phase, which would include converting open cycle turbines to combined cycle. [4] The construction of Tallawarra B power station was prioritized causing a delay in Marulan.[5]They received a project approval extension in 2020, which will expire October 26, 2024 if construction has not begun.[1]
