Meet the Team - Snowy 2.0 - John Morris

Meet John, Health, Safety and Environmental Advisor at Snowy 2.0!

John is passionate about safety and supporting the next generation of professionals on their career journeys.  

“I have been working in construction for many years, since the ‘80s. Safety is just one of those things I've always been involved in, as a rigger, a dogman and on crane crews and I've been doing that for comfortably over a decade now, 15 years or so.  

“My role is all about safety, compliance on the project and just making sure everyone is doing the right thing, considering each other’s safety and looking after our mates. 

“One of the highlights of working on this project is that the scenery here is quite stunning, even when it gets a bit cold. 

“The best thing about the team we have here is the culture. It's a very important thing for us to be making sure we as a team get through our shifts and swings safely and get home to our families. 

“I think for any career in construction, if you're a young person coming up the ranks, you will certainly got a lot of experience here. 

“You will be mentored by some very experienced individuals across all levels of the project and business.  

“The Snowy 2.0 Project still has a few more years to go, so it's certainly a great opportunity for a young person, whether it's in the management level, engineering or a blue-collar roles. It’s a great opportunity to learn from experienced individuals and is certainly a significant project in Australia, being one of the largest construction projects in the country at the moment.” 


About the Snowy 2.0 Project 

Webuild is part of Future Generation Joint Venture - FGJV, the principal contractor for Snowy Hydro Limited, delivering the iconic Snowy 2.0 Project, which will help underpin Australia’s renewable energy future.

Snowy 2.0 will increase the generating capacity of the Snowy Scheme by 2,000 megawatts (MW), up from current capacity which stands at 4,100 MW, and will also triple its pumping capabilities which the Scheme currently has at Tumut 3 power station.

Importantly, Snowy Hydro supplies the National Electricity Market at times of peak demand. As renewable energy sources continue to feed a greater proportion of power into the grid, Snowy 2.0 will help keep the lights on when the wind is not blowing or the sun is not shining.
