AGL Energy Ltd (AGL) plans to construct the Dalton Gas Fired Power Station project in Australia.
The project involves the construction of a gas-fired power plant having a power generation capacity of 1,000MW on 26ha of land.
The power station includes the construction of a powerhouse, substation, and gas receiving station, the installation of high voltage transformers and switchgear and the laying of transmission lines.
URS Australia Pty Ltd has been appointed as an environmental consultant and Green Bean Design Pty Ltd to carry out the Landscape and Visual assessment.
EPC contract has been awarded to General Electric Co. (GE) and Leighton Holdings Ltd (name changed to CIMIC Group).

On October 19, 2012, AGL has suspended the construction of the first phase of the 1,000MW Dalton gas-fired power station in New South Wales State, due to poor market conditions.
The economic viability of this project had been under review for several months because of market conditions; however, State and Federal government approvals remain valid for the next five years.
The project was put on hold due to poor market conditions.
