Stay Connected with WEL Networks

Ventia is excited to commence a partnership with Waikato based electricity provider WEL Networks to deliver a range of services across their network in the Waikato District on the North Island of Aotearoa. WEL Networks currently connects more than 96,000 residential properties, small businesses and nearly 1,000 commercial and industrial sites to an essential power supply, through approximately 6,800 kilometres of above and below ground power lines. 

With more than 60 years of providing services to New Zealand’s electricity industry, we are pleased to be able to bring our expertise to WEL as they look to develop their network. Kicking off in April 2023, our scope will involve the design, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning of new electricity infrastructure across the Waikato District.
