Kane Holmes
Massey University – Bachelor of Engineering

Kane helped schedule work taking place on the electricity network with the Network Access Planning team.

“It’s been a great experience. As an intern you get a good understanding of how the whole power network operates and the people were really focussed on what I wanted to take away from the internship – not just the work itself.”

Jay has had real-world experience as part of the Power Assets team.

“I’ve had the opportunity to visit the work sites and observe a power pole being replaced, with the installation of some new switchgear and automated control unit. It was amazing to see the work being done from beginning to end – seeing plans coming to fruition.”
