A small Napier engineering company has been selected as one of only four worldwide finalists for one of the steel industry’s most coveted award, the Swedish Steel Prize.

HT Engineering faces off against the likes of harvester giant Deere & Company and Sweden’s Sweco Structures on November 17 in Stockholm after being chosen as a finalist from a record number of entries from 20 countries

The Swedish Steel Prize is open to anyone who has developed a product that includes Advanced High Strength steels, as well as construction and wear-resistant steels or a method that expands the field of application for these steels.

It is an annual prize aimed at inspiring, encouraging, and disseminating knowledge about High Strength Steel and the possibilities for developing lighter, safer, and more environmentally friendly products.

The jury selected innovations for agriculture and occupational safety, along with an arena construction project as finalists for the NZ$10,000 scholarship and six months support from the SSAB marketing and product development team.

Motors, Drives & Transmissions

With their help, the generator’s gondola (and thus the wind turbine) is constantly matched to the wind direction on the one hand, while on the other the rotor blades are brought into an ideal position. Bonfiglioli yaw and pitch drives available in Australia and New Zealand are among the cutting-edge products included in Germany’s new Alpha Ventus offshore wind farm.



New Zealand is a small economy and as such, we shouldn’t expect that we can do what larger economies do.”How many times have you heard that statement?Personally, I hear it at least once a week, sometimes more often, and it sickens me.It smacks of defeatism and a lack of vision, and sounds like a convenient excuse.


Environmental Management

DBH has also released its report to the Minister for Building and Construction outlining its response to the findings, including urgent priority actions recommended by the expert panel that undertook the investigation. Ew Zealand must apply lessons from the investigations into the Canterbury building failures to drive progress and reduce risks from earthquakes in the country, earthquake engineers say.
