Services We Offer
Environmental Management System
CS Energy manages the environmental impact of our activities through a comprehensive Environmental Management System (EMS) at each of our power stations, which is certified to the international environmental standard ISO 14001. Independent auditors check the system, at least yearly, to ensure it complies with the standard.
Water is a precious resource that is vital to generating electricity. The majority of water used at Callide comes from the Gladstone Area Water Board's Awoonga Dam and is piped to the Callide Dam to reduce evaporation. Around 85 per cent of the water used at Callide is evaporated in the cooling towers.
The remainder is recycled and used for dust suppression, ash transport and other process water, and finally evaporated in on-site ponds. The station's environmental and chemistry teams carefully monitor water use and quality, and is evaluating water conservation activities.
