Nov 17, 2023
Tractebel and Aurecon form a strategic alliance to revolutionize dam projects in Queensland, Australia, combining their global expertise and local knowledge to meet the rising demand for dam upgrades.
Uniting strengths: Aurecon and Tractebel’s comprehensive approach to dam projects
Marius Jonker, Technical Director for Dams at Aurecon, stated that the partnership is a reaction to the increasing demand for dam upgrades in Queensland, Australia. He said:“Queensland has become a global epicentre of dam infrastructure projects underpinned by the systemic drivers of climate change, ageing assets, and the imperative to protect our communities.
By combining Aurecon’s leading engineering and advisory capability with Tractebel’s global dam engineering expertise, we are empowering our Queensland clients to confidently deliver the pipeline of dam projects for the benefit of communities across the state. We are very excited to bring contemporary and transformative capability and capacity to the Queensland dam market, enabling us to work with clients to tackle their most complex problems.”
Enhancing sustainability and focusing expertise: The vision of Aurecon and Tractebel’s partnership
Evelyn Storey, Managing Director for Queensland at Aurecon, expressed that the partnership will bolster Aurecon’s market position and aid in realizing the organization’s vision of implementing safe and sustainable solutions. She remarked:“The partnership brings unrivalled global expertise to support our clients to protect our communities, grow our economy, protect our environment, and ultimately enhance the liveability of our state.
This partnership is founded on the shared values and vision of the two organisations, and a shared belief that we can deliver far greater value to our clients together than we can separately.” Matthieu Béraud, Tractebel’s Head of Water, highlighted that collaborating with Aurecon allows Tractebel to concentrate their worldwide expertise on the Queensland dams market. He noted:“Tractebel has a proud heritage of delivering large and complex dam projects across the globe and entered the Australian market recently through the pumped hydro storage projects Snowy 2.0 and Big T.
Our aim is to support our clients in their transition to cleaner energy ensuring safe, reliable, and long-lasting dams and hydraulic infrastructure. Combining our experience with Aurecon’s eminent Australian based dams capability and its broad infrastructure engineering and advisory expertise, this partnership enables us to focus our business on the needs of Queensland dams clients.”
