CS Energy is rebuilding the two Callide C cooling towers to enable the safe return to service of Callide C Power Station.

According to CS Energy, the delays are due to the impact of recent rain and hot weather, resourcing challenges, and global supply chain issues.

Some of those issues include freight carriers being diverted to assist with humanitarian efforts in the Gaza War.
