Hastings and Pleadwell Win Koa Anvil Award for Puna Geothermal Work

Congrats to Hastings and Pleadwell for their work with one of their clients  Puna Geothermal Ventures.  Due to their work with PGV… they have taken home a prestigious Koa Anvil Award.

I just read the following tweet from Big Island Resident Laura Kinoshita:

CONGRATS to Hastings and Pleadwell for Award of Excellence, Technology for work on behalf of Puna Geothermal!!! #KoaAnvils

Hastings and Pleadwell were also the folks that tipped me off about the Scholarships that were being given to the Pahoa Highs School kids.

I remember being at the 15th Anniversary gathering  of Puna Geothermal Venture this past year and meeting a few Hastings and Pleadwell officials.
