New Zealand: Northpower has marked a $6 M investment in a new substation at Maunu.
Northpower Network General Manager Josie Boyd says the Maunu substation is part of Northpower’s ongoing investment programme to continue to renew and modernise the Northpower electricity network throughout Kaipara and Whangarei.
The contract to build the substation has been awarded to Electrix. Work will commence in early August and Electrix teams, along with other contractors, will be on site working to complete this project by July 2020.
Electrix Managing Director Robert Ferris says Electrix is delighted to be undertaking the project.
“We have a long association with Northpower, and like Northpower, we are pleased to be undertaking a project that is going to provide so much benefit for the local community.
