After the Scheme was built, two new small hydro stations were constructed on existing Snowy Scheme dams: Jindabyne Mini Hydro Power Station, on Jindabyne Dam, and the Jounama Small Hydro Power Station, on Jounama Dam, to capture the otherwise wasted energy of water releases from these storages.Where does the water from Snowy Hydro come from?
The Scheme’s infrastructure also includes the Jindabyne Pumping Station, completed in 1969. This pumps water from Lake Jindabyne through the Jindabyne-Island Bend Tunnel and Snowy-Geehi trans-mountain Tunnel to Geehi reservoir, where the water is used for electricity generation in Murray 1 and Murray 2 power stations.How much did it cost to build Snowy Mountains Hydro?
The scheme was ahead of schedule, and at a cost close to the 1953–54 estimate of £422 million. However, in the 25 years it took to build, 121 men were killed in industrial accidents. The Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme was one of the most complex engineering projects in the world.Who is the contractor for Snowy 2.0 hydro power project?
Future Generation, a consortium of Salini Impregilo, Lane, and Clough, was awarded a contract to perform the civil and electro-mechanical works for the Snowy 2.0 hydropower project in April 2019.
