Meet Dave Hartfiel, Future Generation Joint Venture (FGJV) Construction Area Manager on the Snowy 2.0 Project. Dave is lucky enough to enjoy these spectacular views from his office across the Snowy Mountains of NSW, Australia.
As a long standing and well-travelled Clough employee, two years ago Dave swapped his views of Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea, to views of the Snowy Mountains.
The Snowy 2.0 project involves linking two existing Snowy Scheme dams, Tantangara and Talbingo, through 27km of tunnels and building a new underground power station.
One of Dave’s favourite parts of working on the Snowy 2.0 project has been getting to know and work with a new, multicultural team of great personnel as well as catching up with some previous long term Clough colleagues.
The project has also come with the challenge of extreme varied weather conditions. “Only 18 months ago we experienced scorching heat with the bushfires; in comparison, this month we received 30cm of snow across the construction sites with sub zero temperatures,” Dave said.
“Snowy 2.0 is a large, iconic and challenging project that is expanding the original Snowy Scheme. The work options are endless with a diverse range of career building opportunities in a number of trades, professions and fields. As a bonus the local Snowy Mountains area is breathtaking, and you will be welcomed into the local communities.”
