Following extensive, competitive tender processes over the last 18 months, Snowy Hydro has appointed preferred tenderers for the Snowy 2.0 project.
Hydropower engineering and equipment supply company, Voith Hydro, is the preferred electrical and mechanical tenderer, and is set to deliver the latest hydro-generation technology in the new power station.
The preferred tenderer for the civil works is Future Generation, a partnership between Australian construction and engineering company, Clough, and global hydropower and tunnelling specialists, Salini Impregilo.
Australian company Leed Engineering has also been awarded the contract for exploratory works pre-construction activities.
Contracts are currently being finalised, with contract execution subject to shareholder approval of the project.
This marks a significant step towards the commencement of Snowy 2.0. It is hoped that the pumped hydro project, along with the existing Snowy Scheme, will underpin the stability of the energy market as more renewable energy enters the system.
