Award Winning Company
Our international work in renewable energy, high voltage networks and alternative fuels has gained us recognition as one of the leading enterprises in Canterbury, New Zealand.
We were named the winner of the Champion Global Operator small enterprise category in the 2016 Champion Canterbury Business Award.
Champion Canterbury director Leeann Watson said our innovative products, passionate people and challenging markets put us ahead of others in this category.
Infratec chief executive Steve McCoy said the company's staff had grown from three, three years ago, to 11.
Our first overseas project was installing solar power in Afghanistan. We also do a lot of contract renewable work in the South Pacific and recently signed a contract in Kiribati.
McCoy said the company was passionate about bringing what is almost a right - electricity - to areas that have never had it before.
In the Pacific Islands we've been converting diesel produced electricity to solar power. That has lifestyle benefits such as no more noise pollution or CO2 emissions and reduced cost
While doing these projects, we work with the community to improve lives. We engage local people in the projects so they have work they didn't have before and gain skills from teaching things we take for granted around health and wellbeing.
Following the win we've had people involved in eco tourism businesses looking for potential power at huts where there are no power lines.
