In 2021, our New Zealand operations were amongst the first to transition completely to renewable electricity. Besides, we are also helping the whole nation make the transition to 100% green energy. The overall country is already at 80%.

We have supplied our Marley Drainflo® Smooth PE corrugated piping with a protective filterstock coating to the Harapaki wind farm located in a remote location near Hawkes Bay on the east coast of the North Island. This project is the second largest wind farm in the country with 41 turbines, enough to power 70,000 homes. It is operated by Meridian Energy.

The Drainflo® Smooth was part of the drainage solution for the access roads leading to this remote location and in delivering the product we took a further step to minimise the carbon footprint of this project.

For instance, we dispensed with the normal plastic packaging we use, working carefully with our freight partners to pack and deliver 12,600 lineal metres of the piping without incurring damage during transit.
