Up to 20 positions at the Angaston plant will
be made redundant following Adelaide Brighton
Ltd announcement it will close its Oilwell cement
The company has informed employees at the
Angaston plant that it’s no longer viable to continue
to operate it’s production line at Angaston.
Brad Lemmon, executive general manager
Cement and Lime at Adelaide Brighton Ltd,
advised The Leader, “The decision is regrettable
but unavoidable due to a range of cost pressures.
“The Angaston plant, which currently employs
about 60 people, will continue to operate as an
important part of the Adelaide Brighton Ltd group,
producing quicklime and Brightonlite cement.
“This decision does not affect the Penrice Quarry
& Mineral workforce.”
The affected employees will receive full
entitlements and will be offered personal support
The Angaston plant’s Oilwell cement production
line was the last of its kind in Australia.
Brad said, “Adelaide Brighton Ltd has worked
hard over the years to ensure a future for its
Angaston plant, investing in equipment upgrades
and efficiency improvements and in 2014, acquired
the Penrice Quarry & Mineral assets to secure raw
materials for the Angaston plant.”
Last Wednesday night’s power
outage in South Australia yet again
highlights the serious and urgent
challenges facing the South Australian
“This latest incident is yet another
example of SA Labor’s failed energy
policy experiment,” claims Mr. Tony
Pasin, M.P., Member for Barker.
“South Australia has become a
national laughing stock when it comes
to energy policy,” he added.
South Australia’s State Labor
Government in pursuing a 50 per
cent renewable energy target has
compromised South Australian access
to affordable and reliable power. By
relying so heavily on intermittent
sources of power, particularly wind our
State is left vulnerable during periods
of peak demand like yesterday. Last
Wednesday night, South Australia
had insufficient electricity generation
as wind was only supplying 2.5 per
cent of demand due low winds. The
wholesale electricity spot price, which
has been averaging around $100 per
megawatt hour this financial year,
reached $14,000 per megawatt hour
in South Australia.
South Australian’s paid and an
average of $2,099 per megawatt hour
last Wednesday compared this with
Victorians who paid an average of
The Australian Energy Market
Operator is investigating this most
recent incident and will provide a
report as a matter of urgency.
Anticipated future high
temperatures mean South Australia
is not out of the woods yet.
Mr. Pasin said, “It’s time Federal
and State Labor recognised their
recklessly high renewable energy
targets are putting energy security
and affordability at risk.
“Last September 1.7 million
households lost power in South
Australia in a state-wide blackout.
We then endured another outage
in December, again in January and
now another in February. It’s just not
good enough. It’s not good enough
for businesses that rely on power to
operate, to employ people, to earn
export dollars. This is detrimental to
the sustainability of the economy of
South Australia. It is very hard to
attract investment to South Australia
when every conversation begins with,
‘Are the lights on at home?’”
