Clough as Part of Future Generation Joint Venture Selected As Preferred Tenderer for the Civil Works For Snowy 2.0

The Clough Salini joint venture (Future Generation) is pleased to announce that it has been selected as preferred tenderer for the civil works for the Snowy 2.0 Project.

Clough CEO and Managing Director, Peter Bennett said: “We are extremely pleased with the award of this iconic project by Snowy Hydro Limited. Currently celebrating its 100th year of operation, Clough is an Australian-founded engineering and construction company with a proven history of delivering world-class projects and critical infrastructure in Australia and overseas. Our local expertise will be one of the key elements for the successful delivery of Snowy 2.0 and combined with Snowy’s legacy we bring together 170 years of Australian expertise”.

“Salini Impregilo are world leaders in hydropower and tunnelling, and combined with Clough’s Australian engineering and construction expertise, this creates an unrivalled partnership capability that will deliver the project for the benefit of the Australian community. We are excited to be selected by Snowy Hydro Limited to deliver this critical national infrastructure.” Bennett said.

Snowy 2.0 will link two existing Snowy Scheme dams, Tantangara and Talbingo, through underground tunnels to the depths of up to one kilometre and an underground power station with pumping capabilities. Snowy 2.0 will add 2,000 megawatts of energy generation and provide 175 hours of energy storage for the National Electricity Market, enough to ensure the stability and reliability of the system during prolonged weather events, such as wind or solar droughts. Snowy Hydro already plays a critical role in ensuring system stability at times of peak demand, and Snowy 2.0 will enhance this existing capability.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. Lest we forget. When the First World War started on 28 July 1914, John Oswald Clough (Jack) was quick to enlist in the army. He was sent to camp at Blackboy Hill outside Midland Junction and trained on No.4 gun. At the end of October, he embarked at Fremantle and left for Egypt. After some months training at Mena Camp outside Cairo, he joined thousands of other ANZACs in the landing at Gallipoli on April 25 and remained with his battery at the Dardanelles for the next eight months until the allies were withdrawn on December 19, 1915. Like many others, Jack was then sent to the Western Front with the 1st Australian Division fighting in Pozières, Ypres and Flers. He was injured for a third time in the Battle of the Somme in 1917 and awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. While recovering, he was commissioned and ended up a Lieutenant before returning to the front for most of 1918, when gunshot wounds to his arm and knee invalided him home. On his return, Jack formed a building company called Clough Brothers with his brother Bill in 1919.
