Leading Australian food producer Colonial Farms has engaged Oomiak to design, install and commission the refrigeration system to serve their new production plant currently being built at Broadmeadows.
Colonial Farms manufacturers value added frozen meal and snack products, mainly beef and chicken.
The new facility at Broadmeadows will allow production capacities to significantly increase beyond Colonial Farms existing Hadfield site current production. This will be achieved through the installation of additional processing equipment and improved floor layout for better product flows.
The new production facility is to be served by a totally new refrigeration plant which has been designed and is currently being installed by Oomiak.
Objectives for the new refrigeration plant include:
Sufficient compressor redundancy to allow for any machine to be out of service without undue impact on production capacity
Compressor combination designed to efficiently meet all load scenarios including during light load non-production and light load periods
Ability to expand to accommodate the addition of future process equipment
Ensure completed works enable Colonial Farms to meet their safety compliance obligations
Oomiak’s work has included the installation of the following plant and machinery:
