Media Release - Genex Kidston Connection Project – Sub-contractor Drop in Session

8th October 2021

Hinchinbrook Business are invited to attend a Drop in Session hosted by Powerlink and UGL regarding sub-contracting on the Genex Kidston Project.

Date: Thursday 14 October 2021

Time: 12.00pm to 2.00pm

Location: TYTO Conference and Events Centre 73/75 McIlwraith Street Ingham

The Genex Kidston Connection will deliver a new 275kV transmission line from Mount Fox to Genex’s proposed new hydro power station at Kidston (approximately 270km north west of Townsville).

Construction on the project is scheduled to commence in the first half of 2022.

The Genex Kidston Connection Project Team will be in Ingham next week chatting to potential sub-contractors about the new high-voltage transmission line. Representatives from Powerlink and Principal Contractor, UGL will be in attendance.

The session will be an informal drop in, providing businesses the opportunity to meet the team and ask questions about bidding for work on the project.

Sub-contracting opportunities on the project include vegetation and access works, machine and equipment hire, cleaning services, waste management and recycling, and much more.
