The Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Scheme is one of Australia’s most iconic engineering achievements. Completed in 1974, in 2013 the scheme underwent a $400 million modernisation program. The program introduced advanced controls and protection systems technology across the entire Scheme. New turbine runners are optimising generation capabilities and improving efficiency of water utilisation and the Jindabyne Pumping Station were upgraded.
Qfactor supported the project providing structural engineering, mechanical systems engineering, lifting systems and procurement management for the complete turbine stator replacement strategy.
