The plant is an air-cooled supercitical design which the company states uses 10% less coal and 90% less water than conventional coal plants.[1] Intergen states that the Millmerran Operating Company "employs 50 people directly and 150 people indirectly when coal mine employees and other sub-contractors are included." Coal for the power station is sourced from the adjacent Commodore mine.[1]
