Liddell closure "the right step": AGL boss

April 11, 2018

AGL Energy CEO Andy Vesey says the board of his company is comfortable with the Liddell shutdown.

AGL Energy boss Andy Vesey says his company has not questioned its decision to shut down the Liddell coal-fired power station in NSW despite mounting attacks from the federal government urging a reversal of the move.

Mr Vesey said the AGL board had not been swayed by criticism from the prime minister and senior Coalition figures because the decision to close the ageing power plant was based on a rigorous process.

"We still all agree that it was the right step," Mr Vesey told a conference in Sydney.
