Port Moresby Electrical Shaping PNG's Construction Industry

Papua New Guinea is a resource-rich country and a growing area for different construction projects and developments that can range anywhere from simple residential to complex buildings, and Port Moresby Electrical has been a huge part of that growth as one of the trusted companies to have shaped the current landscape of the industry solutions sector.


Starting from humble beginnings in 1968, they have slowly worked their way up to achieve an impressive track record they can now boast about. Not only is their portfolio overflowing with the number of projects they’ve done, it’s also filled with landmark projects such as the Grand Papua Hotel, the PNG LNG Camps and the Sir John Guise Stadium.

Addressing the Shortage of Expertise

Because Papua New Guinea is an emerging market, references remain scarce or vague at times in terms of regulations, policies, and guidelines for securing work and construction permits. Certain aspects of the process remain confusing. As a result, things like data and communication, electrical, industrial process, hazard safety and operational area requirements rarely get met in a timely and cost-efficient manner.

Having recognized this, Port Moresby Electrical was conceptualized and created to assist in solving these concerns. As an evidence to that commitment, they have even set up a 24/7 support hotline in order to faithfully address any query that might suddenly come up. PME has also made it a point to continuously search for ways to both increase the quality and decrease the cost of construction. This includes educating their employees on the importance of following the law and the international standards that would focus on safety and efficiency, which has greatly helped in streamlining the process of construction and maintenance in the country.

Addressing Concerns

There are several things you can consult with or even just leave to the hands of the specially trained experts from Port Moresby Electrical. Some of them are the following:

  • Construction (Engineering, design, Automation, Motor Control, etc.)

  • Mining (EPC Services, High Voltage Electrical Reticulation, Telecommunications, etc.)

  • Oil & Gas (Instrumentation, Pipeline Servicing, Hazardous Area Installation)

  • Fire Safety (System Testing, System Installation, System Repair, Signage Supply, etc.)

  • Plumbing (Drain Cleaning, Plumbing Installation, Plumbing Maintenance, etc.)

  • Shutdowns & Turnarounds (Planning, Mobilisation, Execution, Access)

  • Procurement (Material Management, Logistic, Strategic Sourcing, etc.)

  • Maintenance (Compliance Audits, Assets Tracking, etc.)

  • Customisable Crew Hire (Work Permit, Visa Support, Personnel Certifications, etc.)

Importance of Safety

As part of its quality assurance, Port Moresby PNG also places emphasis on safety. It has over a million man hours and a safety record of 1 to back them up, where 0 is the highest rating any company can get. So, getting the services of PME means a safer environment for investors and property owners, during the construction phase and in the long run after the project has been completed.

There are plenty of specialty providers that you can choose from that would be able to assist you, but only PME can claim to fully specialize in all areas of mining, commercial, major residential, and industrial installations. With over 45 years of experience in providing quality service and assistance in Papua New Guinea, you are sure that they are the best at what they do and will be able to address all key concerns that you may or may not know about before, during and after construction.

If you’re planning on setting up any type of property, they can also provide you with a free quote or continued support through their 24/7 hotline service where their friendly staff are just waiting for your call.
