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.

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.
“We are pleased to work with Snowy Hydro to play a part developing this hydrogen-capable plant and to support the local community by creating direct and indirect job opportunities in the industry.”

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.
