Asset Overview

Collinsville Power Station was operated until December 2012 as an intermediate plant fuelled by locally mined coal and with a total output of 180 MW. It has four 30 MW and one 60 MW generator units, which were completely refurbished in 1998 through a joint venture with Transfield Collinsville Pty Limited and NRGenerating Holdings.

RATCH-Australia is in the process of decommissioning and putting under care and maintenance the Collinsville coal-fired power station. It is actively investigating options to redevelop the site with one or more new forms of electricity generation, including solar thermal, solar photovoltaic and gas generation.


Collinsville Power Station is located 90km south-west of Bowen and 4km west of Collinsville, Queensland. It is wholly owned by RATCH-Australia.
