Welcome to Bluewaters Power

Bluewaters Power’s vision is to be a leading power producer in Western Australia. We are achieving this by delivering low electricity prices to the WA Wholesale Electricity Market (WEM) and supporting grid stability through the technical capability to provide a range of Essential System Services to help balance network frequency.

We deliver over 15% of WA’s electricity supply from an asset that is one of the lowest cost producers.

Who we are

Owned by a Japanese power utility (Kansai Electric) and global trading company (Sumitomo Corporation) our shareholders approach our business with a long term view. Our business planning delivers strategies to address sustainable performance, operations & processes, governance and people & culture.

We are committed to working with our customers, the energy industry, local communities and government to continue reforming the electricity market to deliver low cost, reliable energy to power WA’s economy.

What we do

Bluewaters Power Station is the only privately owned coal-fired power station in Western Australia.

Built in 2009, 4.5km northeast of Collie, it consists of two 217MW units and runs on sub-bituminous coal, supplied under long-term contracts from the coal mining town of Collie. As the newest coal-fired power station in Western Australia, we are the most efficient unit with the lowest emissions of this type of generator.

Words from the CEO

The electricity industry is in a dynamic state of transition towards increasing renewables and lowering emissions. As the ultimate just-in-time industry, where supply and demand must instantaneously balance, dispatchable generation such as ours is critical to maintaining a reliable electricity supply.

Bluewaters Power’s business model is underpinned by long term electricity supply agreements with our customers Synergy, Water Corporation and Boddington Gold Mine.

These contracts are supported by Bluewater’s being one of the lowest cost producers in the WEM.

Our power station assets have a very important role to play in the WEM and we recognise the importance of achieving high levels of availability. To achieve this, we are continuously improving our asset management capability and ensuring we value our most important assets – Bluewaters’ staff and key contractors.

Our Vision & Mission

Bluewaters Power’s commitment is to support our community’s transition to a new energy future through secure, low-cost generation as we continue to invest in developing our people and reliable technology.
