Local company, EIS Automation and Electrical, has received national recognition as a finalist in three categories of the 2017 Master Electricians Excellence Awards, which celebrate excellence in the New Zealand electrical industry.

EIS’ work on the new, state-of- the-art wastewater treatment plant in Queenstown gained them finalist spots in:

  • Powerbase Major Contract Award
  • Skills Industrial Automation Award
  • Corys Electrical Energy Efficiency Award

EIS CEO, Dean Addie, said the treatment plant utilised unique electrical and automation systems and efficiency management, with their team working hard to provide effective, innovative solutions to their partner, Downer.

“While it’s true that the team involved have delivered a fantastic result for our client, it’s the whole team at EIS that work together to make sure that we do great things. It’s great to receive such high recognition at a national level,” Mr Addie said.
Master Electricians’ Chief Executive, Neville Simpson, said this year just under 60 applications were received for the Awards – a 30% increase on entries from two years ago.

“The Awards highlight skill sets that are out there. It’s also about changing perception; some people just think electricians look at plugs. These days a huge skill set is required – far in advance of other trades. We want to highlight how clever some are at designing solutions to problems,” Mr Simpson said.

The biennial Awards, which are run by the Electrical Contractors Association of New
Zealand, judge applicants on the following criteria: successful application of trade skills, application and use of new products, processes and emerging technologies, use of appropriate commercial and management skills, consideration of energy efficiency in all applications.
The winners are to be announced at the Awards ceremony to be held in Auckland on Friday, August 25.
