Cimic's UGL secures Contract at Kidston Clean Energy Project

Cimic Group’s UGL has secured a contract for the design, construction and installation of a high voltage transmission line from Kidston to Mt Fox in Queensland, and a new 275kV switching station located at Mt Fox.

The contract will provide revenue to UGL of approximately $150 million.

UGL is currently performing early works and mobilisation for the contract with its client, Powerlink, in support of the Kidston Clean Energy Hub in Queensland.

Cimic Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said: “This project will deliver a transmission line and switching station to connect the Kidston Clean Energy Hub to the national electricity grid – a vital step in the provision of power to Queenslanders and businesses. The award follows UGL’s involvement with other critical power infrastructure projects in regional areas, including Queensland’s CopperString 2.0 and South Australia’s Hill to Hill project.”

UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said: “UGL has an exciting pipeline of work in delivering high voltage power projects around Australia, providing communities with a safe and reliable power supply in some of our most remote regions. We are delighted to build on our relationship with Powerlink for this important renewable energy infrastructure project.”

Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Minister Mick de Brenni said: “By connecting the first pumped hydro storage project in Queensland in more than 40 years, the Palaszczuk Government is ensuring the security of the network. Not only that, construction of the 186km transmission line alone will support 400 jobs and have impacts across the supply chain in communities like Ingham and Charters Towers.”
