Major Projects Foundation was formed as a not for profit company. Under the leadership of Paul Adams, Managing Director of Major Projects Group, a demolition company specialising in difficult and hazardous decommissioning, the project sprang into being. After some years working on how the project might become a reality, Paul seized the opportunity to tender for (and win) former HMNZS Manawanui, a 43m dive tender that unexpectedly became available.

The core people are:

  • Paul Adams
  • Peter Morris, Logistics coordinator
  • Dave Hukka, Marketing, media, documentary and web
  • Pat Miller, Media coordinator
  • Liz Robinson, Administration and finances
  • Bill Fenelon, Ship’s master

and a fantastic group of people who are smart, skilled and committed to the project.

We are backed by luminary experts in a raft of fields including corrosion engineering, maritime conservation, diving, project management, remotely operated vehicles, maritime engineering and logistics.
