Truck of the month: Electra’s Fleet Partnership

Apr 10, 2024

Electra Ltd. isn’t just an electricity provider; they’ve been a cornerstone of New Zealand’s energy infrastructure since 1922. Their dedication extends beyond delivering power – they’re committed to fostering regional growth and community wellbeing. At Waimea Group, we’ve been working closely with Electra for years, designing and building specialist vehicles that keep their operations running smoothly and efficiently.

This month, we’d like to take you behind the scenes and showcase three of these specialist vehicles in action:

Electra’s vegetation crew is out and about keeping things clear with the help of the Donghae DHT150S and Versalift VST47 on a Hino 500. These trucks boast impressive horizontal reach, making them perfect for clearing trees around power lines in Levin. No more tangled branches disrupting your power supply!

Keeping the power flowing often requires maintenance on live lines. For an important 11KV line replacement project in Shannon, Electra utilizes the Donghae DHT150AS. This ultimate live line unit features a specialized boom and bucket lift, allowing crews to navigate tricky pole structures with ease and safety.

We’re proud to support Electra’s dedication to reliable energy and regional development. Looking to outfit your own utility fleet with specialist-built trucks?
