GenusPlus wins maiden defence industry contract


Perth-based essential power and telecommunications infrastructure provider GenusPlus Group has announced its first contract award in the defence sector.

GenusPlus has been awarded a $16 million contract with Laing O’Rourke for the Australia-Singapore Military Training Initiative (ASMTI) training area at Shoalwater Bay.

The power installation contract – which is scheduled to commence immediately and be completed within 6 months – involves the installation, testing and commissioning of high voltage electrical cables and associated equipment as part of the new and upgrading of existing facilities and infrastructure.

GenusPlus Managing Director, David Riches, said the works will be completed by the company’s newly established central Queensland branch in Rockhampton that is expected to facilitate expansion into the region’s growing and developing industries.

“The Shoalwater Bay ASMTI contract in Queensland is of particular significance as it contributes to the national expansion of the Company, and continues to demonstrate a strong return on the investment we have made in Queensland,” Mr Riches said.

“It is also our first power installation contract servicing the defence industry. We look forward to completing the works safely and on time.”
