Page MaCrae - Ngawha Springs Geothermal Plant Installation
The Project Challenge
Ngawha Generation Limited (NGL) expanded the capacity of its Ngawha Geothermal Power Station - The $182 million expansion project was one of the largest construction projects to be undertaken in the Far North, improving security and reliability of power supply for the entire Northland region.
Four drying vessels – 120 tonne and 3x 90 tonne, along with the Cooling Tower structure were brought in from Israel and China. Dynamech were engaged to support assembly and installation of the new power station, supplying mechanical engineering skills: bolting structures, valve and instrumentation installation, structural work, end-cycle installation, valve installation on the final pipework, and high torquing valves on the vessels.
A Satisfied Client
“A team of 20 mechanical fitters was involved, and they were all brilliant. They were responsive – you could ask them to do anything at the drop of a hat, and they delivered high quality results. Punctuality with all jobs was consistent, everything was finished and left clean and tidy. These guys delivered a high standard of work reflecting a strong QMS – They worked how I work, and that’s how I like it,” says Mitch Batten, Site Supervisor, Page MaCrae.
