The Tarong power stations have increased their workforce, welcoming 16 new mechanical trades and electrical employees to the team.
This jobs boost is a direct result of a decision by Stanwell to bring these roles in-house.
The roles were previously performed by Stanwell’s contracting partner, UGL.
Tarong power stations Site Manager Greg McIntyre said the new employees were either already on board or were about to start on site.
They will be performing pivotal work in the maintenance and management of the sites’ coal mills and cooling water systems.
“The decision to bring work that was previously being performed by contractors in-house will deliver a streamlined one site approach, adding value to our business,” Mr McIntyre said.
“It shows a commitment to providing jobs for our local community.”
UGL has advised that due to the reduction in its scope of work, 10 permanent roles were identified as no longer being required.
Impacted UGL workers were provided with the opportunity to apply for the new positions with Stanwell.
