Feature Project

Augusta Power Stations Decommissioning

McMahon Services have been appointed as the Principal Contractor for the two year project involving the decommissioning of the Port Augusta Power Station, following an eight month planning period where we have worked collaboratively with Flinders Power to prepare for the demolition, asset salvage and decommissioning of the Port Augusta Power Station and assets.

This is a unique delivery model for McMahon Services, with an Alliance Leadership Team formed with Flinders Power who share our strong commitment to delivering the project in accordance with our core values of Safety, Teamwork, Leadership and Integrity. The Alliance will see the partnership of both the Owner Party (FPP) and Non-owner party (McMahon Services) to create a single team working unanimously, collaboratively, and cooperatively and acting in good faith to make best-for-project decisions.

Currently the Power Stations are in decommissioning phase, following the last day of power generation on 9th May 2016. Mobilisation to site and the commencement of the two year program will occur in June 2016.

The Augusta Power Stations site closure, dismantling and restoration is a complex project with the involvement of numerous stakeholders. The Alliance commits to early engagement of stakeholders, open collaboration and regular information updates.

The site has a long and proud history and is prominent in the region. The closure program has a high degree of community interest and the Alliance commits to engaging in an open and collaborative fashion.
