About Us

Welcome and thanks for visiting the Genco Energy Group


Background Introduction & History

Genco Energy brand has its foundations established in the business of Building & Construction Project Management and Contracting. The business evolved from founding company Wilberforce Holdings Ltd, a New Zealand business that specialised in design build Construction and Project Management. In October 2006 the WHL Principals were called on to provide project & construction management assistance with a power generation utility construction project in Western Australia.

Genco Energy Ltd was subsequently formed 6th May 2007 and the Genco brand has since travelled the growth economies of the world which latterly have been Australia, Africa and Asia.

Since 2007, Genco Energy Ltd has grown into the Genco Energy Group, operating in new Generation Development, International Power Generation Investment and EPC Project and Construction Management.

 

One facet of Genco Energy which has been the catalyst in establishing its reputation internationally, is the development of its specialist international Project Recovery team, called on to turn around Power Generation construction projects that have turned 'out of favour' with critical cost or schedule difficulty.

Since 2006 the Genco Energy global reputation has been earned with the successful delivery of 27 projects worldwide on both greenfield and brownfield starts, involving Gas Turbine and Reciprocating Generation power plant.

Genco Energy Group has a history of projects in Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, United States and Africa.
