International Power Hazelwood (IPRH) has announced the official opening today (Tuesday 16th February 2010) of a new 10 kilometre section of the Morwell River south west of Morwell.

International Power Australia’s Executive Director, Tony Concannon, will launch the new section of river and embankments after a 38 month construction program.

IPRH Chief Executive Officer, Mr Graeme York, said the opening represented the final important milestone in Hazelwood’s West Field Mine Development Program.

“Our Rivers and Roads Relocation Project (RRR) was designed to provide Hazelwood with access to coal reserves that secured fuel supply for the expected life of the power station to 2036 in accordance with the 2005 state government approvals,” Mr York said.
