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 Residential, Commercial and Industrial 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 Wilberforce Holdings founding principals were called on to provide Project Management assistance with a heavier project involving a Power Generation utility construction in Australia.

Genco Energy Ltd was subsequently formed 6th May 2007 where its first assignment was to facilitate a joint venture between a major Australian CSM explorer and a private New Zealand Oil and Gas company. Genco 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. The technical and commercial experience of the Genco founding Principals that underpins the Groups success ranges from 25 to 40 years. This experience extends to and includes power generation EPC Construction, general building and construction, electric utilities, electrical manufacturing, electrical contracting, international procurement & trading, logistics, shipping including Plant & Machinery valuation. 


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 Southern Africa.
