SecureEnergy, Clough and Elecnor Joint Venture, Awarded Additional Scope for Transgrid’s EnergyConnect Project

SecureEnergy, a 50/50 integrated joint venture between Clough and Elecnor, is pleased to announce it has been awarded an additional scope of work for Transgrid’s EnergyConnect project, a contract of more than AU$100 million.

The additional scope includes upgrading the double circuit transmission line between the Dinawan and Wagga Wagga substations.

Peter Bennett, Clough CEO and Managing Director said: “I am incredibly proud to be part of this project given it plays such a critical role in transitioning the Australian energy sector to a cleaner future. The award of this additional scope is a testament to the strong relationship that has already developed between Transgrid and the SecureEnergy joint venture.”

SecureEnergy was awarded the engineering, construction and procurement (EPC) contract for EnergyConnect in June 2021.

The Project has been strongly supported by the New South Wales Government which has declared it Critical State Significant Infrastructure. EnergyConnect is a key element of the Australian Energy Market Operator’s Integrated System Plan that provides an integrated roadmap for the efficient development of the National Electricity Market over the next 20 years and beyond.
