BOUMBIS ORCHARDS COLD ROOM UPGRADE AND AUTOMATION
Boumbis Orchards is a local fruit grower in Shepparton who produce a wide range of fruits. We recently undertook the electrical upgrade project for their refrigeration and cool room. Owner Don Boumbis is a third generation grower, and Boumbis Orchards have earned a reputation in the marketplace for their ability to grow and supply high-quality pears all year round.
This electrical project involved the upgrade of 12 existing cool rooms and installation work for two brand-new rooms. We also installed a new plant room and new motor control switchboard. The motor control centre was manufactured in-house by our experienced team, and the site was also converted from Freon gas to ammonia. On top of this, we also installed a new Twite control system in all 14 rooms and the refrigeration plant. This system is now fully automated with two 75 kilowatt compressors and one 45 kilowatt compressor.
