Kidston Pumped Storage Hydro update

This is what Australia’s transition to renewable energy looks like, up close and personal. It’s the powerhouse cavern under construction, 250 metres below ground at Genex Power’s Kidston Pumped Hydro Power project in remote Far North Queensland.

Once complete, the cavern will be 80m long, 18m wide and 45m high. It will house the turbines capable of generating 250MW of rapid response renewable energy to power 100,000 homes. All powered by water from the dams above.
