Installed capacity of operated generation assets
AGL's installed capacity of natural gas generation assets increased in FY20 due to the acquisition of the 120 MW Kwinana Swift Power Station in Western Australia and the completion of the 210 MW Barker Inlet Power Station in South Australia. The increase in wind capacity resulted from the completion of the 440 MW Coopers Gap Wind Farm in Queensland. The increased capacity in black coal is from the completion of the first 25 MW upgrade to the Bayswater Power Station.
This breakdown includes only those generation facilities where AGL held operational control as at 30 June in the corresponding financial year.
Installed capacity listed is the lower of AEMO registered capacity and AEMO maximum capacity and includes the recently completed 25 MW upgrade to the Bayswater Power Station.
Changes in the reported installed capacity between FY16 and FY17 reflect updates to the definition of installed capacity to ensure consistency between sites, rather than actual changes to plant capacity. However, the increase in landfill gas generation capacity in FY17 reflects the addition of 2.8 MW installed capacity from the new Kemps Creek Landfill generator.
