Te Ope Kātua o Aotearoa/New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) is seeking Requests for Tender (RFT) from suitably qualified, experienced and credible High Voltage and Backup Generation Main Contractors who have the capacity and capability to meet the requirements within the required timeframe.

This Project is for three containerised 1.1MVA (mega volt ampere) generators, prefabricated High Voltage substation and supporting modifications and extensions to electrical infrastructure and civil works associated with this project. It will include contractor design components, build and commissioning at RNZAF Base Auckland, located in Whenuapai.

Upon completion of the Project it will:
• provide standby power to all infrastructure at RNZAF Base Auckland
• improve the flexibility and resilience of the RNZAF Base Auckland power network to ensure operational outputs can be delivered with minimal disruption
• enable RNZAF Base Auckland to continue their operation during any event that results in the loss of electricity supplied through two incoming power feeds.

The RFT is available on the NZDF e-tendering system, SmartProcure. If you are interested in this opportunity we recommend you create your free SmartProcure account. Please visit to register and view this tender opportunity.
