history of hydro generation in NZ
hydro accounts for 66% of NZ's generation
hydro-electric plants in operation in NZ today
New Zealand. Clean, green, and leading the charge in renewable generation, which is currently at 80% and rising.
Over 60% of that generation comes from our country's hydro stations, which have been in operation for over 100 years, and continue to supply roughly 5,000MW of installed capacity.
Nexans has supplied several hydro-electric stations from construction, refurbishments, and upgrade projects; the first being the Mangorei power station, which was built in 1931.
We continue to support this sector with a reliable and durable suite of products, and provide technical consultancy and logistical solutions to these projects across the country.
For the country's most reliable energy source, Nexans is a partner to be relied on.
Time-to-market is key; our country's continuous electricity supply depends on it.
Partners in this sector expect co-engineering and technical advice, pre-testing, easy-to-install product solutions and first-class transportation services.
Outside-the-box logistics solutions also become important when site storage is minimal and access to these, often remote, sites is challenging.
These projects can benefit most with tight project management and seamless communication between operators, installers, and suppliers.
