The Gladstone Power Station is a world-class facility providing customers with safe, reliable, low-cost electricity.
Gladstone Power Station was built by the Queensland Government and first commenced operation in 1976. The station has been a significant part of the Gladstone community and an important energy provider for Queensland since that time. After 30 plus years of operation we are still Queensland’s largest single power station and remain an important generating facility in the National Electricity Market. We take our role in the community, in which we all live and work, as an important part of how we seek to operate this Station.
Since 1994, the station has been operated by NRG Gladstone Operating Services on behalf of Joint Venture participants Rio Tinto Ltd (42.125%), NRG Energy Inc (37.5%), SLMA GPS Pty Ltd (8.50%), Ryowa II GPS Pty Ltd (7.125%) and YKK GPS (Queensland) Pty Ltd (4.75%).
