Overhaul works for Queensland’s largest pumped hydro

The Queensland Government has invested $17 million into major maintenance works on Wivenhoe’s 285MW Unit 2 turbine, creating 100 jobs under the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.

Planned maintenance is carried out every five years to ensure the long-term reliability of Queensland’s only existing pumped hydro facility.

CleanCo is being supported by a specialised workforce to undertake these works, and where possible is engaging local businesses to support the delivery of this important work.
