As an environmentally conscious company, the Huntly Power Station was a challenging project for us, having built the first hybrid cooling tower in New Zealand.

The seven cell cooling tower we built for the new E3p combined cycle power-station showcases the latest technology in energy efficiency. The tower reduces the temperature of the water used and utilises a conventional wet section as well as a heat exchanger dry section.

Highlighting our adaptability, we constructed the entire tower from fibre-glass reinforced plastic. It’s a material of the future - we believe - as it’s light, less expensive, easy to work with and has the strength comparable to steel.

The project commenced in 2005 and involved building a tower 110 metres long, 16 metres wide and 18 metres tall. It was a challenging task, requiring upwards of 60 staff, plus support from the New Plymouth workshops.  Part of the project involved installing 11 metre diameter fans and 200 horse-power reduction drive units.


The contract for the building of this 10-cell cooling tower was signed mid 2007 and the project has been completed under the supervision of our appointed site manager. 

Meco was fortunate with the level of committment of staff and contractors involved.  For the duration of entire project Meco had zero days recorded in lost time as a result of injury.

The project holds National and International significance for Meco - proving our capability with major construction and being able to match extensive demands for labour, expertise, equipment and machinery.
