UGL wins renewable and utility contracts worth $296M

The New South Wales Government has awarded the main works contract to build the Prince of Wales Hospital’s new Acute Services Building as part of the $720 million Randwick Campus Redevelopment.

CIMIC Group’s UGL has secured $296 million in design, engineering, procurement and construction contracts in the renewables and utilities sectors.

UGL will design and build two 330 kilovolt switching stations and construct around 65 kilometres of double circuit transmission line for the MacIntyre Wind Farm Precinct Connection Project for Powerlink in South West Queensland.

It will also provide design and construction works at the Mica Creek Solar Farm Project comprising an 88-megawatt solar farm, substation, and transmission line in the Mt Isa region in Queensland for APA Group.

The company also secured a contract to engineer, procure, and construct an 87-megawatt solar farm and provide substation upgrade works at Tailem Bend for Vena Energy in South Australia.

CIMIC Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Juan Santamaria said the company is proud to be supporting the growth of the Australian renewable energy market with these projects.

“UGL has deep experience in critical power infrastructure across transmission lines, solar farms and other renewables, and recently completed work on the Victorian Big Battery project in Victoria and the Wallgrove Grid Battery project in NSW,” Santamaria said.

UGL Managing Director Doug Moss said the Mica Creek project will be UGL’s third solar project for APA Group and the Tailem Bend 2 project is a continuation of the work it performed with Vena Energy on the adjacent site.

Each of the contracts commenced in late 2021 and is expected to be completed in 2023.
