Connell continues to help
power New Zealand with
greener energy

    WAIKATO-BASED CONNELL CONTRACTORS IS CEMENTING ITS PLACE IN A
    GREENER FUTURE ASSISTING WITH A SECOND SOLAR FARM FOR NEW ENERGY,
    INFRATEC AND LOADSTONE ENERGY.

    Following the success of the Kaitaia Solar Farm, the 32MW Edgecumbe Solar Farm is
    poised to be a game-changer, providing clean energy to over 6,000 small businesses,
    farms, homes, and apartments annually, and Connell is playing a critical role in its
    success.

    Nationally award-winning Connell has been instrumental in shaping the physical
    foundation of Lodestone Energy’s vision. Since early 2023, Connell’s dedicated team
    has been on-site, transforming the landscape to accommodate this milestone in the
    Far North.

    “Our extensive planning and preparation, coupled with the right people and resources,
    allowed us to overcome challenges, particularly in the demanding winter conditions.
    We’re proud to have played a pivotal role in maximising Aotearoa New Zealand’s
    renewable energy output in a sustainable manner,” says CEO Lester Foxall.

    Connell Contractors continues to be a key player in New Zealand’s green infrastructure
    development, helping lay the foundations for vital energy projects. As Lodestone Energy’s
    Edgecumbe Solar Farm takes shape, Connell’s commitment to excellence is helping pave
    the way for a greener and more sustainable future.
