New power station provides 300 jobs in Wellington

The local economy is stoked as ERM Power has been given the approval to construct a $700 million gas-fired power station in Wellington. The announcement last week has given residents a well needed boost as the plant will provide over 300 jobs during construction and at least 10 permanent jobs once it has been completed.

ERM Power NSW director Andy Pittlik said the joint announcement between the company and the NSW Department of Planning could not have come at a better time.

“It is major projects like this that will help give the local economy a much-needed boost,” he said, ” We anticipate that the Wellington Power Station will contribute $100 million to the local economy during its construction.”

The Dubbo Daily Liberal reported that gas station would provide 5 percent of NSW’s power supply during peak periods, and would provide extra capacity for business development and growth. The news of the massive power plant has locals looking forward to new job opportunities; a sigh of relief in the tough economic times.
