Sydney Harbour contract for SNC-Lavalin

SNC-Lavalin, a fully integrated professional services and project management company with offices around the world, has been appointed to deliver engineering services associated with the asset management of Sydney Harbour Tunnel and the city’s new Western Harbour Tunnel.

Under a long-term services agreement, SNC-Lavalin will support Ventia, the asset management services provider for both tunnels and working for Transport for NSW. Ventia is one of the largest infrastructure service providers in Australia and New Zealand.

SNC-Lavalin will provide a range of engineering services, supporting Ventia’s engineering team, for the effective transition of existing operations of the Sydney Harbour Tunnel to Ventia, before operational commencement from September 2022.

It will also support Ventia during the procurement, design and construction phases of the Western Harbour Tunnel, including through systems engineering and digital asset management.

Ventia Director of Project and Program Management Services for Australia and New Zealand, Paul Callender, said it was a significant contract for the company as it continued to increase its portfolio in Australia, delivering critical infrastructure which is reshaping cities and communities.

SNC-Lavalin has had a presence in Australia for over 20 years and is currently involved in a number of major projects including the Sydney Metro Western Sydney Airport Line; Inland Rail; and the Cross River Rail project in Brisbane.
