Western Rail Coal Unloader
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Australia and coal|
The Western Rail Coal Unloader is listed by ABARES as a $80 million project proposed by Delta Electricity to be built near its power stations near Lithgow. The project has been approved by the New South Wales government and is scheduled to be completed in 2012. The project will allow the unloading of 8 million tonnes of coal a year. On its website Delta states that its "Western power stations are the only power stations in NSW which do not have a rail coal unloader. This new facility will help ensure adequate and competitively priced supplies of coal for the existing Mt Piper and Wallerawang Power Stations."
