Downer’s Mining division has not only designed a Remote Grease Pressure Release System to eliminate the risk of high pressure grease injection injuries, it has decided to donate all royalties from sales to A Miner’s Legacy, a not-for-profit foundation that provides support and assistance to families of mineworkers involved in fatal mine accidents.
Downer NZ proactively supports our clients and industry with smart infrastructure services.

This initiative supports both our clients and business partners with a focus on alternative and smarter transport solutions that are better for our environment, better for our businesses and better for our country.
