$250m Shoalhaven project to deliver 350 jobs

The Illawarra Mercury is reporting that last year, Origin revealed its plan to double its pumped hydro storage power near Kangaroo Valley and Bendeela, and has since prepared an Environmental Impact Statement on geotechnical works at the site.

The geotechnical works would provide confidence the project can be constructed and operated in a safe and economically viable manner.

Origin says the project would assist in transitioning NSW to a low-emission based economy, while also creating more than 350 jobs during construction.
