We have completed several major projects specialising in the design, fabrication and installation of CHPPs for major mine sites in the Bowen Basin. Our team can see a project through the full lifecycle from design and engineering to fabrication in our workshop facilities, to onsite installation and construction as well as ongoing maintenance.
