A project to retrieve and sell useable items from the now closed Wallerawang power station will begin later this month, with EnergyAustralia signing an agreement with Australian-owned EA Auctions to assist with asset disposal.

As part of the project, EnergyAustralia employees will oversee the safe removal of functional plant and equipment, primarily from inside Wallerawang’s turbine hall.

EA Auctions will then offer salvaged items for sale to its network of plant and equipment buyers to recoup some of the anticipated costs of demolishing and rehabilitating the site.

EnergyAustralia will not begin demolishing the power station until salvage is complete and planning approvals are obtained - a process likely to take some years.
