CONJECT supports the first NEC3 project in Australia!

We are pleased to confirm that our software is supporting the first project in Australia to be delivered under the NEC3 (New Engineering Contract).

Meridian Construction has begun on Meridian Energy’s 64 turbine wind farm located at Mt Mercer, in western Victoria. Due for completion in 2014, it’s anticipated that the farm will generate 131 Megawatts of electricity, which would provide enough renewable energy to power the nearby city of Ballarat.

The wind farm is being developed by Meridian Energy Australia – a wholly owned subsidiary of Meridian Energy Ltd, New Zealand’s largest generator of electricity using only renewable resources. Wind Turbine Meridian Energy is one of the early adopters of the NEC3 and is using the suite of contracts to deliver a range of renewable energy projects throughout New Zealand. CONJECT’s NEC Contract Management software is helping to integrate Meridian and their supply chain with all NEC3 project communications, ensuring that they are working within the specified timescales and adhering to the specific terms and conditions of the contract.

This builds on the recent success CONJECT has had in assisting clients with NEC projects in the region. For instance, the software is currently supporting Christchurch City Council and Canterbury District Health board with their NEC3 projects and programmes.
