Griffin’s sustainability plan

HAVING gone through the process of changing its name to reflect a reformed image, Griffin Energy Pty Ltd, formerly Griffin Coal, has now released plans to become a sustainable business.

Griffin this week unveiled plans to develop a 350 to 400 megawatt, $500 million coal power plant on Griffin-owned land near the existing Collie A power plant.

Concurrently the company is seeking to direct salty winter run-off from the Wellington Dam into its mine voids, while diverting fresh water extracted from the mines that is currently used by the power stations to the Wellington Dam. This will add a further 50 gigalitres of potable water to the dam, representing about 20 per cent of the South West’s annual consumption of fresh water.

Griffin Energy is also undertaking wind power development north of Perth.
