Oomiak completed the refrigeration component of an upgrade for Montague Cold Storage in Tullamarine.
The project involved a significant expansion of storage capacity and reshaping the total building for improved product flows and higher volumes to meet the needs of customers.
Works included the general expansion of the freezer area and the construction of an adjacent new annex and dock area, as well as the reconfiguration of an existing annex to freezer.
All work was undertaken while the facility remained in full operation.
Oomiak’s approach was to design and install a refrigeration solution that was compatible with the existing plant and equipment. The program of works enabled the building works to progress without any disruption to Montague’s business operations.
The solution consisted of a combination of air defrost alcove units for the freezer, and under-ceiling hot gas defrost evaporators for the low temperature annex.
The refrigeration control and SCADA systems installed as part of the project were also representative of the existing site systems.
