WIVENHOE power station is undergoing a $17m overhaul to ensure it continues to operate safely and reliably while delivering clean power for generations.
Major maintenance works started this month, creating 100 jobs.
Wivenhoe Pumped Hydro Power Station has two massive 285MW turbines and these planned maintenance works take place every five years which is critical for the long-term reliability of Queensland’s only existing pumped hydro facility.
Publicly owned CleanCo is being supported by the specialised workforce at Downer to undertake these works, and where possible is engaging local businesses.
Pumped Hydro can continue to operate throughout the overhaul period, providing reliable low-emission energy to the grid.
