2018’s Taranaki Regional Excavator Operator competition

Last Sunday 11th November the Taranaki CCNZ Branch delivered their first REOC in 7years. Fortunately James Corlett was there to catch the action.

A team of members and sponsors, ably lead by Ross McEwen ( a branch life member), set up on a site owned by member company Offshore Plumbing Services.  Ten competitors all showed both good operating skills and knowledge of Health and Safety procedures.  The event was deliberately “low key” in order to get it right for a much larger event next year, yet over 250 people visited the event and from all accounts thoroughly enjoyed what they saw.

It was great to see the new Hitachi machines going about their work with all of the competitors giving some positive feedback. Many thanks to Cable Price for once again stepping up as the major sponsor. And thanks to Hirepool, Humes, Whitaker Civil, Oil Intel (Total Oil) and OPS Offshore Plumbing and Pipeline for their products and services.
