Hazelwood Power Station demolition - the client’s view

13 August 2020

Save article

In last week’s D&Ri newsletter, and in the June-July 2020 print issue of the magazine, we featured the contractor Delta Group’s recent chimney demolition at the Hazelwood power station project in Australia. Here, we revisit the project from the perspective of the client, energy supplier Engie. Ian Needham, head of stakeholder engagement, Hazelwood Rehabilitation Project, talks to editor Steve Ducker.

When did you start talking to Delta about the Hazelwood project?

Ian Needham
Delta Group was one of three contractors that Engie Australia shortlisted as part of a comprehensive EOI (expression of interest) and tendering process that led to the contract award in late 2018.

D&RI Magazine - Editorial Shot (2).tif

The chimney demolition was the latest stage in a project that started with Engie awarding the contract to Delta Group in 2018

As principal contractor, Delta Group has led a broader team of national and international subject matter experts, specialising in demolition engineering, who have been involved in developing the demolition approach so as to develop a safe and effective programme of works, and demonstrate to regulatory agencies and key stakeholders a robust process to meet legislative compliance.

What was it in their history or track record that made them a good fit for this job? Have you worked with Delta before?
The Hazelwood Mine & Power Station Demolition Project is the first of its kind for Engine in Australia.

Delta Group shared our commitment to safety and the environment that was essential criteria in selecting an appropriate contractor. Delta Group also demonstrated financial, organisational, human resources, industrial relationxs and operational capacity to manage a project of this significance and scale.

What were the main considerations for a demolition project on a 4,000-hectare site?
The first consideration was the safety of workers and of the local community, particularly the effective management of all risks associated with asbestos and to ensure complete regulatory and legislative compliance at every stage and across every facet of the agreed works program.

Stakeholder engagement was also important. “Our social license to operate” is very important to Engie, and relies on transparency to key stakeholders, regulatory departments, and our local community.

There was a lot of public interest in Hazelwood – how big a factor was that in your choice of contractor and how did it influence conversations between you and Delta during the project?
The decommissioning of Hazelwood has been of high interest since its closure in 2017. The local community has strong long- term connections to Hazelwood.

We recognise the emotional attachment this project has to region, and has invested time and resources in ensuring a transparent, well communicated, and safe project is being carried out while showing the upmost respect to the local sensitivities of the area.

Delta Group has had a long-standing connection to the area, and committed to engaging with the community. Creating jobs for locals was a critical element of the contractor selection.

Did you insist on any particular specifications or methodology in how the job was executed, or was it left to Delta?
Yes. A project such as this requires a team orientated focus. Whilst Delta Group intellectual property is critical to the success of the project, Engie via independent subject matter experts, ensured they remained engaged with all stages of the methodology development and implementation of the works.

Engie’s website says the demolition represented the culmination of an enormous amount of pre-work and planning. What form did this take?
From the EOI and tendering stage to the chimney fell event was 16 months. In that time thousands of hours went into planning and preparing for the demolition of the chimneys, and thousands of hours more for the overall project.

The project has involved developing and executing a safe and effective programme of works, for example:

Engineered risk assessment of all possible demolition methods – for chimney stacks and all structures
Blast modelling, design and management
Asbestos surveys and identification, management and removal, onsite containment, measuring, monitoring and reporting
Wind and weather modelling for dust (plume) as a result of chimney fells
Extensive community engagement
Consultation with key stakeholders – Victorian government regulators, local emergency services
Emergency response planning, training and management.

Nord Stream 2 at increased risk of non-completion, financial partner says
Aug. 11, 2020 8:59 AM ET|About: Uniper SE ADR (UNPPY)|By: Carl Surran, SA News Editor

Intensifying U.S. sanctions make a delay or even the non-completion of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline an increasing possibility, says German utility Uniper (OTC:UNPPY), one of the project's partners.

If the pipeline cannot be completed, Uniper says it "may have to impair the loan provided to Nord Stream 2 and forfeit the planned interest income."

The U.S. has stepped up its sanction threats, Pres. Trump signed a sanctions bill that has delayed construction, and Republican senators recently warned the operator of a German port that it faces sanctions for facilitating construction of the project.

Uniper is one of the financial backers of the €9.5B Nord Stream 2 pipeline owned by Russia's Gazprom (OTCPK:OGZPY), along with Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B), BASF's (OTCQX:BASFY) Wintershall unit, Engie (OTCPK:ENGIY) and OMV (OTCPK:OMVJF).

5. What about the Europeans?

BP Plc said in June it was cutting its estimates for oil and gas prices in the coming decades between 20% and 30%, while also expecting the cost of carbon emissions to be more than twice as high as before. As a result the company is reviewing its projects, which could lead to some oil being left in the ground. Royal Dutch Shell Plc, BP and Total SE have written off billions of dollars of assets as the pandemic destroyed oil demand and prices, making some fields unprofitable to drill. The bulk of Total’s impairment applied to Canadian oil sands, which are costlier and more carbon intensive than conventional fields.
6. What type of assets are at risk?

BP said Aug. 4 that it’s now targeting a 40% decline in hydrocarbon production and won’t explore for oil in any new countries. The company’s chief of staff Dominic Emery said back in 2019 that complicated projects could be shelved in favor of fields that are quicker to develop. The pressure to curb emissions may prompt companies to leave the most carbon-intensive reserves untouched. Across the industry, projects most at risk include deep-water discoveries off Brazil, Angola and in the Gulf of Mexico, as well as some Canadian oil sands assets, according to Parul Chopra, vice president for upstream research at Rystad Energy A/S.

August 5 (Renewables Now) - French energy group Engie (EPA:ENGI) and research organisation Mining3 have secured CLP 252 million (USD 326,500/EUR 276,000) in financing for their Hydra renewable hydrogen powertrain project in Chile.

The funding has been allocated by Chilean economic development agency CORFO to support part of the project to design and supply a new powertrain for mining vehicles to run on green hydrogen instead of diesel.

Engie and Mining3 will begin with a pre-feasibility and engineering study of the powertrain and the renewable hydrogen refuelling system for mining trucks. Then they will proceed with the design and fabrication of a fuel cell and battery powertrain prototype with a capacity between 100 kW and 200 kW, and test its performance under mining conditions. This will be followed by competitiveness studies for technical and economic validation of the technology.

The end objective is to scale up the solution to convert mining vehicles of several mining sites in Chile, according to the announcement.

Engie SA said Friday that net profit dropped in the first half of 2020 as its financial performance was significantly hit by Covid-19, and provided guidance for the full year.

The French energy company said net profit in the period was 24 million euros ($28.4 million) from EUR2.08 billion in the year-earlier period.

Revenues decreased to EUR27.43 billion from EUR30.25 billion.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization came in at EUR4.48 billion from EUR5.32 billion the year prior.

"Results for the first half of 2020, and in particular for the second quarter, were down significantly with an estimated [current operating income] impact of about EUR0.85 billion due to the unprecedented Covid-19 crisis," the company said.

Looking at 2020, Engie said it expects net recurring income to be between EUR1.7 billion and EUR1.9 billion and capital expenditure between EUR7.5 billion and EUR8 billion. Guidance assumes a continued, gradual return to normal across geographies.

A new chief executive officer is expected to be appointed in September and potentially start by the end of the year, it said.

Scaling up off-grid solar power model for transforming rural energy access across Africa; EIB financing to overcome barriers to 80% of Ugandans without access to electricity; Local currency financing to accelerate PAYGO solution for affordable green energy.

Millions of people, small holders and entrepreneurs in remote villages across Uganda are set to access reliable and cheap electricity for the first time under a new off-grid solar scheme agreed between ENGIE (, through its Solar Home System company Fenix International and the European Investment Bank, one of the world’s largest financiers of renewable energy.

“Access to affordable and clean energy is important to fight poverty, create jobs and empower women and girls. The European Investment Bank is pleased to agree new support for scaling up off-grid solar deployment in East Africa under this new partnership with ENGIE. Over a million people across Uganda will be able to access electricity for the first time that will power communications, provide light and make cooking easier. This scheme will also reduce use of kerosene, charcoal and candles to help families save money, reduce pollution and reduce the risk of accidents. Unlocking sustainable economic and social development through off-grid solar is key for Africa’s future and the EIB is pleased to back this project in Uganda.” said Ambroise Fayolle, European Investment Bank Vice President.

“At ENGIE, we see the massive potential of the off-grid electrification sector as a way to bridge energy gaps across Africa, faster and more affordably. Every day families across Africa are able to access electricity for the first time using off-grid solar technology provided by ENGIE Africa. Our new partnership with the European Investment Bank in Uganda will allow Fenix to provide ultra-affordable PAYGO systems to millions of people in villages across the country. This will provide access to clean solar power and financial empowerment. Providing access to energy in Africa is a huge undertaking but I firmly believe that universal access to energy is achievable in the foreseeable future, through smart investments in a combination of national grid extension, solar home systems and mini-grids. With our off-grid platform, we are industrializing and scaling up the development of a wide range of decentralized solutions, with a sustainable business model. As of now, ENGIE is providing decentralized electricity to more than 4.5 million people in 9 countries through solar home systems from both Fenix and ENGIE Mobisol, as well as mini-grids from ENGIE PowerCorner.” said Yoven Moorooven, CEO of ENGIE Africa.

The European Investment Bank has agreed to provide a USD 12.5 million loan to support the deployment of 240,000 high-quality solar home systems in Uganda by Fenix International, a subsidiary of ENGIE.

Solving the last mile challenge to provide power in remote communities across Uganda Only one in five Ugandans living in remote and rural communities has access to reliable electricity. By scaling up adoption of off-grid solar technology this new initiative will provide economic, social, education and health opportunities for families and entrepreneurs who cannot be connected to the national electricity network.

Customers will also be able to benefit from Fenix International’s service centres that provide support in 30 languages across Uganda.

Supporting private sector growth and sustainable development in Uganda

Following the new agreement between Fenix and the European Investment Bank households, entrepreneurs and small holders across Uganda will be able to access electricity for mobile phones, solar lighting, refrigeration, radio and television. This will help farmers to sell produce, create new markets for traders and improve health.

Increased provision of reliable and affordable energy will create new opportunities for women and girls and reduce exposure to indoor pollution from current kerosene use.

“The European Union is committed to supporting sustainable economic and social development across Uganda. This new cooperation initiative between the European Investment Bank and Fenix International, a subsidiary of leading European energy company ENGIE, demonstrates the value-added of European engagement with Ugandan partners to advance the country’s development vision. Harnessing renewable energy through innovative off-grid solar technology, combined with productive uses of power in rural areas, is a direct demonstration of the European Union’s green deal for Africa, providing new opportunities for millions of Ugandans.” said Attilio Pacifici, European Union Ambassador to Uganda.

Unlocking financial empowerment and overcoming currency barriers

Provision of a PAYGO model will allow families who would be unable to afford the upfront costs of solar home systems to repay the cost of equipment over years at less than USD 20 cents a day. The new European Investment Bank financing will also allow repayment of equipment purchased in US dollars in Ugandan shillings. Previously currency fluctuations hindered provision of affordable clean energy solutions to Ugandans without access to foreign currency.

“Providing hundreds of thousands of new solar home systems through the PAYGO model will allow our Ugandan team to transform communities across the country. We are proud to be the latest national off- grid power operation to be supported by the European Investment Bank and we will work tirelessly to illuminate homes and provide clean power until all of Uganda can access electricity.” said Daniel Willette, Managing Director Uganda (Fenix)

Customers will also benefit from cheaper costs and easier repayment through use of mobile banking. This will also provide other financial products and allow customers to expand existing equipment as needed.

Building on the EIB’s renewable energy track record in Uganda and across Africa

Over the last decade the European Investment Bank has provided more than EUR 5.4 billion for clean energy investment across Africa.

In recent years the European Investment Bank has been a leading financial for the Bujagali hydropower project in Uganda, the Lake Turkana Wind Farm, Olkaria Geothermal plant and the Radiant and Eldosol solar schemes, as well as financing last mile connections in Kenya. The EIB is also supporting studies to harness hydropower to transform clean energy in Burundi and the Great Lakes region.

Ocean Winds is targeting floating and bottom-fixed offshore wind projects in Europe, the US and Asia

Engie and EDPR joint venture evolves into new company, Ocean Winds

21 Jul 2020by David Foxwell

Engie and EDP Renov√°veis (EDPR) have announced the creation of Ocean Winds (OW), a joint venture equally controlled by both companies in the floating and bottom-fixed offshore wind energy sector

Both companies believe that offshore wind energy is an essential part of the global energy transition, and that this will lead to the sector’s rapid growth and increased competitiveness.

The new company will act as the exclusive investment vehicle they use to capture offshore wind opportunities around the world. OW will, they say, become one of the top five global offshore wind operators by combining the industrial and development capacity of both parent companies.

EDPR and Engie are combining their offshore wind assets and project pipeline in OW, starting with a total of 1.5 GW under construction and 4.0 GW under development, with a target of reaching 5-7 GW of projects in operation or under construction and 5-10 GW under advanced development by 2025. OW is primarily targeting markets in Europe, the US and selected geographies in Asia.

OW chief executive Spyros Martinis said, “OW has been created with the intention of combining the experience and knowledge of two companies with a successful track record in the generation of renewable energy in a single firm, in order to take a leading position in the offshore wind sector.

“We share a vision for the key role of renewables in general, and offshore in particular, in the new energy model. The creation of a company combining the experience and resources of both will give us the chance to lead a sector in this increasingly real and necessary transition.”

Despite the initial focus on Europe, the US and Asia, OW chief operating officer Grzegorz Gorski said, “We are continuously monitoring opportunities in multiple countries. We are seeking not just to grow in the markets where we are already present, but also to explore opportunities to add value in new countries.”

OW has over 200 employees and expects to have 300 by the end of the year. The company already employs people from 15 different countries, almost a third of them women.
