UGL is CIMIC’s end-to-end asset solutions provider that specialises in the entire value chain of design, construction, to overhaul and management. 

Works on the awarded projects will include operations and maintenance, engineering design, and construction. 

UGL will provide maintenance, projects and turnaround services over two years for existing client Viva Energy.

The Powerlink project will connect the MacIntyre Precinct in southwest Queensland to the transmission network. 

CIMIC Group executive chairman and chief executive officer Juan Santamaria said UGL was pleased to continue working relationships with the companies and was expertly equipped to deliver the projects. 

“UGL has a national presence providing specialised engineering expertise to clients in the resources and utilities space,” said Santamaria. 

“We’re pleased to again work with Viva Energy and Powerlink to support critical infrastructure for communities around the country.”

UGL managing director Doug Moss said the new contracts bolstered the company’s reputation as a reliable service provider. 

“UGL has a strong reputation in the resources and utilities industries, and these contract awards demonstrate our relationship with existing clients and the faith they put in us to deliver safe, quality and reliable outcomes for their businesses,” Moss said. 

Both contracts are effective from October 2021.
