The Federal Court in Brisbane today rejected a union application for an interlocutory injunction that would have delayed the return to service of two electricity generation units at Tarong Power Station, near Kingaroy. The units were put into cold storage in 2012.

Stanwell’s Chief Executive Officer, Richard Van Breda, said he was pleased with the decision.

“We made a business decision to return the Tarong units to service,” Mr Van Breda said.

“Today’s judgement is welcome. We take our obligations to our people seriously and this decision allows us to continue the work to return the units to service which is good for our people and for the South Burnett region,” he said.
