Snowy Hydro 2.0

Project completion April 2023
Location Snowy Mountains, NSW
Client Future Generation
Sectors Energy and renewables, Pumped hydro and gas

Snowy Hydro 2.0 stands as Australia's premier renewable energy initiative, poised to redefine the nation's energy landscape. This project seamlessly integrates with the existing Snowy Scheme, solidifying Australia's transition to a sustainable energy future.

This transformative initiative entails linking the Tantangara and Talbingo dams through 27 kilometers of tunnels and constructing a cutting-edge underground power station.

Snowy 2.0 is generating a multitude of benefits for communities in the Snowy Mountains region, including enhanced local employment opportunities, support for local businesses, infrastructure upgrades for suppliers, and a boost in economic activity.

Driving the project forward is Future Generation Joint Venture (FGJV), a collaboration uniting the engineering expertise of three industry leaders: Clough from Australia, Salini Impregilo from Italy, and Lane Construction from the United States.

Symal, a key partner in this endeavor, has been entrusted with six distinct Snowy 2.0 packages, each tailored to its unique scope of work. Having already completing the Polo Flat Precast Yard, Symal will continue working on various packages.

Local engagement is at the forefront of our approach, with members of our core team growing up in Cooma and leveraging their local connections to involve and empower subcontractors from the area. To date, over 30 local employees have joined the project, with more than 10 local businesses providing materials and equipment.

Together, we're not just building infrastructure, we're building a brighter future for Australia, one powered by collaboration, innovation, and community spirit.
