Cimic Group’s UGL has been named as the Principal Contractor by Snowy Hydro Limited for the construction of a 660MW power generation plant at the Hunter Power Project in Kurri Kurri, New South Wales, Australia.
The contract will generate revenue to UGL of $131m (A$185m) over two years.
The power generation plant will consist of two heavy-duty F-class gas turbine generators that operate using dual fuel sources, including provision to operate on a hydrogen fuel mix.
CIMIC Group Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “Hydrogen-ready gas turbines have an important role in reducing carbon emissions from traditional power generation.”
UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “UGL is delighted to begin its relationship with Snowy Hydro, providing support on the journey to develop a power generation facility in the Hunter region. UGL is well-placed to provide the expertise, skill development and training for the construction, installation and operations of new generation technologies across Australia.”
The contract will commence this month.
