I’m Alex.
I represent one of the many construction workers building Snowy 2.0.

Let me show you the scale of the project.

Sometimes bigger really is better

Let’s go through the numbers.

Snowy 2.0 is currently being built within the existing Snowy Scheme in Kosciuszko National Park, between Australia’s biggest two cities where power demand is highest.

That’s like the size of a basketball on a basketball court.

Once complete, Snowy 2.0 will occupy just

0.01%

of Kosciuszko National Park.

Chances are, you won’t even see it when it’s finished!

Snowy 2.0 can provide energy to

500,000

homes all at the same time.

That’s the same as three cities the size of Canberra.

Snowy 2.0 will create up to

4,000

jobs during construction with thousands more supporting the project through the supply chain and support services.

Tap me to eat

During peak construction, workers will eat

2.2 million

meals a year.

Together they will create

27km

of waterway tunnels, plus additional tunnels for staff to access the power station

and build a pumped-hydro power station around

800m

underground!

The project will use around

8,000

shipping containers worth of equipment

and workers will need around

36km

of hi-vis clothing.

IT’S A BIG PROJECT AND THE BENEFITS WILL BE BIG FOR LOCAL COMMUNITIES TOO

Here’s Lisa from procurement to tell you all about it.

Thanks Alex

Let’s go see the good news for all the Snowy region.
