Generation Licence granted

May 22, 2014 Alcoa of Australia Limited has been granted an Electricity Generation Licence for its Anglesea Power Station. The licence was required to allow Alcoa to continue to generate power from Anglesea after 31 July 2014 when Alcoa’s long term electricity agreement with the State Electricity Commission of Victoria (SECV) expires. Currently the licence responsibility is part of Alcoa’s long term electricity agreement with the SECV.
