Members of the South Waikato National Grid Connection project team, along with our CEO James Kilty, Northpower representatives and South Waikato District Council Mayor Jenny Shattock were recently guests of Ngāti Ahuru hapū at Mangakaretū Marae near Putāruru to bless the start of construction.

Their Koroua led the turning of the soil and a karakia, before everyone returned to the marae for a pōwhiri and afternoon tea.

Our contractors Northpower will be constructing the connection, which started earlier this year and will continue through until mid-2023.

There’s a lot of mahi ahead for the team, and we wish them well over the coming months.
