Hazelwood

Located to the south of Morwell, Morwell open cut mine ceased operations in March 2017 with the closure of Hazelwood power station by its owner, ENGIE. Planning for final rehabilitation of the 120 metre deep mine is underway with significant earthworks and bucket-wheel excavation activities focused on the safe, stable and sustainable rehabilitation of the site. Work is also underway to remove mining infrastructure and decommission the former 1542MW power station.
