From Christchurch to Chile: Kiwi company dominates in export innovation

21 Oct 2017

This week has been an exciting one for Aranz Geo, the Kiwi provider of mining, environmental and renewable energy solutions, and this year’s Export Innovator of the Year.

Aranz Geo was recognised at the 2017 New Zealand Innovation Awards that took place in Auckland on Thursday, during which a number of other Kiwi companies, from start ups to Maori cuisine pop-ups, received awards.  

The company's chief executive Shaun Maloney says, “This is a really proud moment for our passionate and dedicated global team who are taking our innovative software and services to every part of the globe.”

The Christchurch company has established an expansive global presence, spanning 80 countries, thanks to its revolutionary Leapfrog 3D geological modelling tech.

The company’s tech is utilised in a number of projects, from earth and energy to environmental which includes water quality and resource management, hydro dams, transportation, civil engineering and geothermal energy.  

“Our innovation is now contributing to the understanding and management of some of the biggest earth, energy and environmental challenges facing humanity and the planet,” adds Maloney.

“It’s a very exciting time for the company. We started out applying our innovation in the mining industry, and the success and learning has opened up a world of opportunity.  We’re growing rapidly around the world as a result.”

Maloney explains that the company’s technology is currently being used to contribute to geological modelling and management of geological risk for the construction of a final disposal facility of spent nuclear fuel in Finland.

The company has offices around the world including South Africa, the U.K., Australia, Denmark, Canada, Chile, Colombia and Peru.
