Project Description

Cake are proud of our position on the Asbestos Service Provider Panel for Transpower New Zealand. As an Asbestos Service Provider,Cake are trusted by our client to offer effective solutions for Asbestos related problems and are often called upon to undertake Asbestos Removal projects.


One such project was the Kawerau Substation. For this project,Cake were tasked with removing over 70m of old Asbestos Pipe from a live Substation environment. This added to the complexity of the Class A Removal works and required our team work with high levels of coordination to ensure Transpower’s services were not disrupted.

Following the successful removal of the Asbestos Pipework, Cake engaged in an Environmental Clean of the surrounding area. This involved a 3-stage decontamination process and saw the careful operation of heavy machinery toremove contaminated soil where required.


The project was successfully completed within a month and without disruption of live services. We are extremely grateful for the trust Transpower places in Cake across our multiple divisions and we look forward to continuing our relationship.
