Petrochemical Projects in the New Plymouth Region




New Plymouth, New Zealand

Completion date


The petrochemical industry in New Zealand includes the exploration, production and distribution of hydrocarbons from both onshore and offshore deposits. Marshall Day Acoustics has been active in the Taranaki region for over 20 years and have local, regional and international experience.

With on shore exploration getting closer to dwellings, and a better understanding of legislative controls by the general public, pressure is bought to ensure noise from exploration, production and distribution is appropriately controlled.

Industry specific training includes work site safety, gas detection training and common permit to work (PICWS). This commitment to training allows site management to be confident that all Health and Safety protocols will be adhered to. In addition, we have staff that have completed BOSIET training to enable travel to off-shore facilities.
