Doug Hood Mining


Whether operating from remote semi-permanent sites or servicing projects from our base in Westport, we have the capability to effectively support our projects.

In 2008 while principal contractor at Stockton Mine the company established office, workshop and training facilities in Westport to support the company’s South Island-wide activities including plant hire.

These facilities include:

  • 2 component rebuild bays, a light vehicle bay, 2 heavy vehicle and engineering bays, ground floor offices, stores and amenities.
  • Level 1 incorporates a management meeting room, training room, 2 offices and amenities.
  • A separate store housing component parts.
  • A self-contained training centre with two large training rooms, one housing an Immersive Technologies simulator for light vehicle and dump truck operator training.

When we operate from remote semi-permanent sites we may set up both permanent off-site and functional on-site refuelling, bulk oil, workshop, office and amenity facilities.
