IGS NZ LTD IS NOW SKYWARD POWER & CONTROLS LTD                              



Skyward Power & Controls is a North Canterbury based company specialising in power controls & diesel generation. Tim Lockwood of Skyward Power & Controls Ltd started as a generator technician in the British army in 1997, completing 8 years in the Royal Signals in various roles. Upon leaving he moved into electrical contracting, gaining knowledge & skills in domestic, commercial, & industrial electrical installation work before running a successful contracting business in the UK. Tim settled in New Zealand after meeting his now wife, Rachel, and took up a position as generator technician working in both Christchurch & Auckland. It was whilst working in Auckland that he took over as Contracts Supervisor for Dickson Gray Electrical at Auckland Airport as the Pier B expansion under Hawkins, and refurbishment of the International Terminal was underway with Fletchers. A family decision to move back to Canterbury saw Tim continue in management, returning to QPower, and pleased to be working, again, with ComAp products which has led to the recent purchase of IGS NZ and the ComAp distribution agency. Skyward Power & Controls offer expert, fully independent advice on your diesel generator installation, upgrade or project as well as IQP services (14.1) for your BWOF.
Skyward Power & Controls specialises in the control systems that automate your generator and control and interface with your site electrical systems.
A generator has multiple systems on board, traditionally requiring different trades to understand and maintain it.
A diesel mechanic for the engine, a motor/generator winder for the alternator, an electrician for the electrical connections and more recently an automation technician for the control systems.
Skyward Power & Controls brings all these skill sets into one company.
Using our knowledge base of trained generator technicians country wide we can bring you quality expert service to your installation for maintenance, modifications and fault finding and analysis.



The modern control systems used in generators has allowed new types of applications for generators that were previously unobtainable.
Skyward Controls work with its customers to develop and deploy these new systems.


Electrical lines company products: No break between generator and utility supply. This technology has been used for many years now using the Comap Combi software. Skyward Controls has developed a method of using this technology at high voltages (11-13kV), even when the disconnection point is many miles away from the generator connection and control area.


VSUP voltage support: Under heavy loads network voltages decrease as the current flowing in the supplying conductor rises. Skyward Controls has developed software and procedures to allow a generator to autonomously detect this voltage sag and correct it. No user intervention is required. This system is designed for areas where there is temporary high loads on the network, or maintenace is being performed.


Generator WAN Black box integration: Skyward Controls is working with customers to develop a single point interface for multiple generators spread across a wide geographical area. This allows for a common control system to call for network generation. This system allows for peak load limitation when a network is under pressure, by injecting kW where they are required, at the points of heavy use.
