Graz - April 29, 2021. International technology group ANDRITZ has received an
order from the EPC contractors McConnell Dowell and John Holland to supply the
electro-mechanical equipment for the 250-MW Kidston pumped storage plant in
North Queensland, Australia. Kidston will not only be Australia's first pumped
storage plant for more than 40 years, but also one of the world's first to be
co-located with a solar plant. The owner and developer of Kidston is Genex
Power. Commissioning of the plant is expected in 2024.
The ANDRITZ scope of supply comprises design, manufacturing, supply,
transportation, erection, and commissioning of two 125-MW reversible pump
turbine units as well as full operation and maintenance services for more than
The pumped storage plant was developed in a unique location by utilizing two
open pits from an abandoned gold mine. Once filled up with water, it will
operate as a closed-loop system and generate, store and dispatch renewable
energy on demand during peak periods, capable of supplying enough sustainable
and clean electrical energy for more than 280,000 Australian households.
Additionally, the plant can be operated in a synchronous condenser mode to
provide grid services such as reactive power management and synchronous inertia.
This order not only confirms once again ANDRITZ's strong position in the
Australian hydropower market, but also for pumped storage technology, which
plays an important role in providing grid stability to cope with volatile solar
and wind power supplies. The combination of hydro equipment supplies with state-
of-the-art asset management services is also strong proof of ANDRITZ's well
diversified product and service portfolio for all applications and demands in
the hydropower business.
