|Contract works||Raise the dam wall by 15 metres|
CIMIC subsidiary Thiess worked in a consortium to raise the wall of the Hinze Dam in Queensland by 15 meters to 108 meters above sea level. This was designed to reduce flooding while increasing the water supply from the dam to 225 million liters per day. Thiess also upgraded the facility’s technical and security systems and adapted the recreational areas and road infrastructure to the site’s new design.
