Clough Elecnor Joint Venture, SecureEnergy, Signed EPC Contract to Deliver Transgrid’s Project EnergyConnect

The Clough Elecnor joint venture, SecureEnergy, is pleased to announce the award as the engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) contractor for TransGrid’s Project EnergyConnect. Project EnergyConnect will build the critical electricity transmission infrastructure which will save NSW customers $180 million a year and create 1,500 new construction jobs in regional NSW.

Peter Bennett, Clough CEO and Managing Director said: “We, together with our partner Elecnor, are excited to be part of TransGrid’s Project EnergyConnect as their EPC contractor. We celebrate this significant milestone within the Australian energy-sector that will support the country’s commitment of reducing emissions, bringing saving to NSW households, creating 1,500 construction jobs and a myriad of opportunities for regional businesses.”

Secure Energy is a 50/50 integrated joint venture between Clough and Elecnor.

Elecnor is a leading international EPC contractor responsible for delivering some of the largest transmission lines in the world. Their core capabilities include transmission lines and substations.

John Galvin, Clough Executive Vice President Australia and Asia Pacific said: “Elecnor has an enviable track record globally in delivering high voltage transmission projects such as this, and combined with Clough’s Australian Project delivery expertise, we form a formidable team to deliver a project that supports the continued transition of the grid to new sources of energy generation and a reduction of emissions by approximately one million tonnes of CO2 per annum.”

TransGrid’s Project EnergyConnect is building backbone infrastructure for the future South West NSW Renewable Energy Zone, enabling connection of a further 4950MW of generation capacity. Project construction is expected to begin in the western NSW section in late 2021 and commissioning will be underway in 2023.
