Hume is a 58MW hydro power station located at Hume Dam, the second largest dam in NSW, on the Murray River upstream from Albury-Wodonga. It was commissioned in 1957 and comprises two 29MW turbines. RJE were engaged to replace the existing 1950’s 66KV switchyard that feeds into the Victorian electricity grid via Wodonga. RJE delivered 2 x pre-manufactured 66KV switching skid assemblies to minimise outage durations and streamline the brownfield installation process. The adjacent 132kV NSW feeder switchyard was maintained for generation during the outage which added to the numerous Brownfield site challenges. RJE’s diverse skilled network of employees all worked closely to deliver this project to minimise delays for the client and overcome some challenging Brownfield site obstacles.
RJE are thrilled to be able to participate in this exciting defence project and look forward to continuing our successful relationship with General Electric (GE).

RJE have been engaged as principal contractor to install 4 x 30MW GE TM2500 Gen 8 Gas turbines at Lonsdale & 5 x 30MW GE TM2500 Gen 8 Gas turbines at Edinburgh to provide temporary power generation over the summer months to meet South Australia’s short fall. RJE are on site managing the turbine installation & alignment, turbine package stack out & the mechanical electrical balance of plant assembly & commissioning. We’ve got a great team of people leading this project and will achieve our objective by 1st November 2017. Thanks to all involved in this project for the great work carried out so far.
RJE have completed their latest Fast Power installation with the commissioning of another GE aero-derivative TM2500 Gen 8 30MW Gas Turbine Generator at the Thaketa Power Station, Yangon (Myanmar) for GE Power. The project engineering, fabrication & specialized services were performed by RJE Global, with the country installation managed by RJE’s Myanmar branch. The project has been a complete success and demonstrates RJE & GE’s ability to provide rapid power-system solutions with first-fire being achieved in record time!
RJE has completed the 33kV double circuit (OPGW & OHEW) overhead line at White Rock Windfarm which comprised a 1040 meter gully span. The line was suspended on free stranding monopoles. The pole design/ detailing, installation (including stringing and tensioning) & procurement was performed by RJE Global.
The foundations were made up of rock anchors, pads and a pedestal foundation design, which was constructed by RJE.
Big thanks to the entire RJE team involved in making this a great success.

First Fire at Thaketa Power Station, Yangon Myanmar was achieved at 9.33pm 10th July.
Fantastic achievement by all involved in such a short time schedule. We would like to thank everyone for their efforts and in particular to the GE/RJE teams at site.
The plan is for today is to first synchronise/achieve full load and achieve COD milestone.
Happy 21st birthday to a great company that stands strong and continues to be managed by some of the best the industry has to offer. Well done to Robin, Dean and all the team at RJE for your contribution to making it to 21 years today!!
The 2 new RJE supplied GE gensets & the relocated CAT gensets have been synchronised to the Chuuk Island power grid & load tested. The client’s representative will witness SAT (site acceptance testing) over the next week in preparation for a handover in mid May.
Our Nick Leach & Josh Smith have been on night shift providing operational support to the customer. Thanks guys!! Big thanks for the work put in on the project by Mitch Pace, Dylan Johns, Brett Ricketts, Sam White, Lea Pickett & the whole RJE team that has been in country for the duration of the project. Your efforts are always greatly appreciated!!
