The new Gippsland Tech School (in Australia) officially opened on 26 April but students have already started classes, with ENGIE’s Hazelwood power plant rehabilitation project a topic for discussion.

Students consider outcomes for the Hazelwood coal mine rehabilitation project

Students from the school have been coming up with their own ideas about how the Hazelwood coal mine should look after rehabilitation operations. Some used Lego to create a model of a lake, surrounded by recreational features and a hotel.

Another work in progress suggested a lake surrounded by a skateboard park and a rally car track. There was even a design for a hydropower plant on the site.

The students and teacher Ian Anderson had also listed some interesting facts about the Hazelwood coal mine on a wall. For instance, do you know how many tennis balls would fit into the open cut? Exactly 4 698 410 000 000 – that is enough to supply the Australian Open for more than 100 million years.
