Diona to partner with WaterNSW on the Asset Renewals and Replacement Program


WaterNSW has named The Diona Partnership (a partnering agreement led by Diona Pty Ltd) as a Construction Partner to deliver their Asset Renewals and Replacement Program.

As New South Wales’ largest bulk water supplier, WaterNSW operates the state’s dam and river systems and network of facilities and systems. To keep this essential infrastructure maintained and operating efficiently, WaterNSW has engaged engineering and construction partners on a five-year, $80 million dollar program.

The Diona Partnership brings together the constructability expertise, program management experience, and delivery capability of Diona with the specialist technical services of strategic partners to provide the maximum discipline and geographical coverage.

Diona’s Executive General Manager, Rhonda McSweeney, says this long-term collaborative partnering model will drive efficiencies across the network and program lifecycle, and support WaterNSW in achieving their objectives of safe, prudent, efficient, value for money outcomes to support current and future community needs.

“We are excited to embark on this relationship and look forward to seeing how Diona, together with WaterNSW and our strategic partners, can realise savings in capital expenditure, improve asset performance, and deliver community centric outcomes.”

With WaterNSW’s footprint extending across regional New South Wales, this program will create new opportunities for local people and businesses bringing economic and social benefits for the community.

“For our employees this program means variety in the type of projects and surety of future work for the years to come. It will also open up new job opportunities for people looking for a career in the engineering and construction industry,” said Rhonda.

Diona has delivered water utility services to the New South Wales market for over 35 years and this new contract builds on Diona’s reputation as a leading utility services partner.

“The award of this program is a testament to our teams who are consistently achieving great outcomes for our clients across Australia. This is a great opportunity to draw on the decades of cost intelligence, technical knowledge and innovations delivered on projects and programs with similar utilities providers to the ARRP and WaterNSW.”
