Shipping Containers New Plymouth & Taranaki

The Taranaki region has been well integrated into the multiple uses of shipping containers for many years.

New Plymouth is New Zealand’s hub for the gas exploration with the largest offshore natural gas field “Maui” located just 35kms off the Taranaki coast.  SEA Containers NZ are a leading supplier in all offshore shipping container related fields.

We have been able to assist New Zealand companies such as Pentair with growth through supply of specialized Mobile Testing containers for use on offshore rigs. These “Offshore” containers are the Hummer version of standard shipping containers with blast proof electrics and specialized lifting lugs.

The “Naki” as some locals will refer to it as also offers great lifestyle opportunities with the famous “Surf Highway 45” which stretches from Hawera around through to New Plymouth providing some of NZ’s best surf breaks. The outer towns are full of history such as the small town of Patea, famous for a great sing along “Poi E” written by the Patea Maori Club. 

Aside from Surf and sing along’s the region also provides New Zealand with the bulk of young chickens through Tegel’s Lepperton based Hatcheries. Check out our innovative Heated Egg Storage shipping containers which Tegel use at their main hatchery.
