J&C Reid Earth Moving wins Earth Award for Bogong Power Station cable installation

J&C Reid Earthmoving walked away with the Earth Award for Category 1 – Project with value up to $A1 million for the cable installation project, which also recevied a special mention from the CFF.

The Bogong Power Station will add another 140 MW to the existing 241 MW generating capacity of the Kiewa Valley Hydroelectric Scheme, making it the largest hydropower project to be constructed in Australia in 25 years. Construction of the project involved excavating an 800 metre headrace tunnel and a 5,700 metre main headrace access tunnel, using a 5 metre diameter Robbins tunnel boring machine.

The CCF National Awards, in conjunction with major sponsor Hitachi Construction Equipment, are the culmination of a series of state-based awards conducted throughout the year. The Earth Awards are designed to highlight excellence in construction technique, environmental management and project management.
