Singapore Power’s subsidiary in environmental scandal

2 Aug

No. You wouldn’t hear of this in the Singapore mainstream media.

Alinta, which owns some of the most extensive natural gas pipelines and electricity networks in Australia has been accused of carcinogenic pollution in one of their Sydney Council-owned sites, Barangaroo. According to the Barangaroo Development Authority, the toxic chemicals, found underneath the site, is estimated to cost $98 million dollars to clean up. The New South Wales Greens have demanded that Alinta picked up the tab.

Alinta was bought over by Singapore Power and Babcock & Brown in 2007.

Below is a captured screenshot of the article from Central Sydney magazine’s website:
