Oomiak was excited to set a new benchmark for meat distribution in the Australian market through the design, install and commission of the refrigeration services for Woolworths’ primary meat processing and distribution facility for Victoria.
The Truganina temperature controlled storage and distribution facility was completed in 2015. The Woolworths facility built in conjunction with their Joint venture partner Hilton Food Group will supply case-ready meat to over 325 supermarkets across the state.
The 62,000m2 site has robots, automatically guided vehicles and conveyor belt systems. These systems ensure the seamless transport of meat from production areas, to the warehouse, and then robots ensure product is sorted and stacked for distribution.
Working closely with the consultants, client and builder (Vaughan Constructions) allowed Oomiak to produce a unique solution which satisfied all the requirements of the system.
