Coffeen’s Coffeen power station in South Australia will be shut down by the end of the year.
The Coffeen plant is located on the northern edge of Coffeen, about 100 kilometres west of Adelaide.
The announcement comes a week after Coffeen issued a statement confirming it had taken steps to make the plant operational, and that it would be shut temporarily to avoid a “significant impact” on the Coffeen community.
“The Coffee plant is not operational and will be closed temporarily to minimise the impact on Coffees customers and our community,” the company said.
“While this temporary closure is intended to minimises any impact on our Coffees residents, we cannot guarantee the return of electricity to Coffees households as a result of the temporary closure.”
There is a significant impact on the operations and operations of Coffees power stations and our customers and the Coffees people will continue to be affected by the closure of the Coffee power station.
“As a result, Coffees plant will be temporarily shut down until the Coffey power station is operational again.”
Coffeen’s decision comes after Coffees energy company said it was shutting down the Coffehane power plant after a major power outage last year.
