Seequent Named Finalist in NZ's Westpac Champion Business Awards 2018

We are thrilled to have been named a finalist in the prestigious Westpac Champion Business Awards 2018, in the category of ‘Lyttelton Port Company Champion Medium/ Large Exporter’.

Shaun Maloney, CEO, says the nomination is a fantastic acknowledgement for the team who have delivered some stunning achievements for the company over the past “really big” year.

“We’ve continued to grow strongly – launching major new products for the civil engineering and environmental industries, as well as continuing to deliver new innovation for the mining and minerals and geothermal energy industries. We’ve also completed a major rebranding exercise to better reflect our capability in a wider range of industries, which has been driven by multi-million dollar R&D efforts each year for the past 6 years.” 

Seequent is known worldwide for its Leapfrog® 3D geological modelling software, initially developed for the mining and minerals industry, to provide insight and confidence for important investment and environmental decisions.  Today, civil engineering, environmental and geothermal energy industries also rely on Seequent’s software to better understand subsurface geology and manage geological risk on a diverse range of projects. 

Maloney says the company’s technology is involved in some of the world’s most important and challenging projects, including the first final repository for nuclear waste in Finland, multi-country vehicle and rail tunnel projects in Europe, and water quality projects globally. 

“We were also recently amazed to hear our Leapfrog Works software had been used by a local team to create a 3D model of the Tham Luang cave system, where 12 boys and their coach were recently trapped, to help communicate the high-level geological complexity of the caves area to rescue teams.” 
 
Winners will be announced at a black-tie gala dinner to be held at Horncastle Arena in Christchurch on 19 September, 2018.
