Diona named on Ausgrid Civil Construction Services Panel

Ausgrid, the largest distributor of electricity on Australia’s east coast recently announced Diona as a successful proponent for the Civil Construction Services panel.

Brian McGuinness, NSW State Manager for Diona, says that securing this new panel arrangement with Ausgrid is a strong endorsement of the trusted partnership Diona has developed with Ausgrid.

“Diona’s relationship with Ausgrid extends over 20 years, having delivered more than $200 million worth of projects in the last ten years alone. Over this time, we have built up a solid portfolio of electrical experience from laying high voltage transmission cables on the Balgowlah 132kV projects, to the recent builds of the Peakhurst and Rozelle Substations. At times we had up to 30 crews operating simultaneously on Ausgrid works,” he said.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to continue our partnership with Ausgrid and support them in delivering essential electrical infrastructure to the greater Sydney region for the next few years.”

With a network spanning 22,275 kilometres, Ausgrid supplies electricity to more than 1.7 million homes and businesses across Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter regions. This new panel will support Ausgrid in keeping the network operating efficiently with works covering underground conduit and cable laying; new substation builds and refurbishment of existing substations; oil containment upgrades for existing infrastructure; perimeter and boundary fencing; and substation roof replacements.

According to Mr McGuinness, Ausgrid was seeking experienced suppliers with the capacity and expertise to reduce costs, while maintaining the highest WHS standards.

“Safety, reliability, and cost-effective outcomes are top priorities for Ausgrid. Diona is committed to maintaining our high standards in safety and look forward to working closely with Ausgrid to provide the best value solutions for their projects, customers and the broader community.”
