In Lithgow, New South Wales, Springvale mine produces the coal used by Mount Piper power station, which provides approximately 15% of the electricity consumed in the state. Veolia’s expertise won over Springvale Joint Venture and Energy Australia: the Group was awarded the contract to build and run the water treatment plant for the mine and power station for fifteen years, along with the maintenance of a pipeline connecting the two sites.

The construction project, which is set to be completed in 2019, will create a large number of jobs in the region.
