Last night we celebrated the external launch of Construction and Maintenance Services as a separate business division with a new name – Enerven. The launch was held at Adelaide Oval, and invited guests included our clients and customers, suppliers, government officials, industry peers and, of course, Enerven staff.
Troy Grey was MC for the night, and we heard from SA Power Networks CEO, Rob Stobbe, as well as Enerven’s General Manager, Richard Amato. The night’s formalities concluded with a Q&A session between Troy and Richard, and the reveal of the Enerven LiDAR 3D survey vehicle; which had been hidden from guests for the evening. There was also a silent auction on the night, for a 7kW Samsung battery, which can be installed and used for energy storage in conjunction with a PV Solar system. The money raised from the auction was given to our employee foundation, which supports several charities, including; Cancer Council SA, Hutt St Centre, and the Mary Potter Foundation. The winning bid was then matched by Enerven, with all proceeds being divided between the charities.

The event was a chance to showcase some of the great achievements of CaMS to date, as well as highlight some of the key reasoning behind the move from CaMS to Enerven. The shift will see Enerven legally becoming a separate business to SA Power Networks by 1st January, 2018. It will allow Enerven to explore markets it may have been unable to previously, due to barriers and constraints that the partnership with SA Power Networks placed on CaMs. The split will allow Enerven to become more agile in the ever-changing energy industry.
Enerven itself will be divided into two operational units. The first, Energy Infrastructure; which will maintain the traditional CaMS business, that delivers infrastructure and maintenance services to our clients, through telecommunications, transmission network construction and maintenance, private electricity network construction and maintenance, metering and calibration, LiDAR, and drone technology. The business unit separation allows for better synergies and efficiencies to be realised for our existing customers. The second, Energy Solutions, is going to be the future. This division will be working on technology such as, microgrids and embedded networks, commercial PV solar and battery storage, and investigating new and emerging technologies and solutions that are being developed in our industry. At Enerven, we aim to be at the forefront of this technology, leading the way, to become a market leader for South Australia, as well as expanding our national market.
We would like to thank everyone that attended the external launch, and a huge congratulations to the staff that helped organise the evening. We are so proud of our journey to date, and look forward to seeing what the future holds for Enerven.
