Eastland Group

Diesel

To help ensure the lights stay on and disruption is minimised for customers connected to Eastland Network, several semi-permanent 1MW diesel generators are located at key locations around the Tairawhiti and Wairoa regions.

These generators provide back up and support on the network and allow our teams to undertake maintenance on the network while minimising outages.  They also provide electricity generation to remote areas if they are cut off by weather events or other emergencies.

This generation can be dispatched and operated from our control room in Gisborne and is key to making sure electricity is available when needed.
