The mew business Coates Power & HVAC will establish hubs in Ingleburn, Sydney, Dandenong in Melbourne, Albert Park in Adelaide, Kingston in Brisbane, and Belmont, Perth.
In conjunction with more regional branches these hubs will offer customers a complete end-to-end solution for their power and HVAC needs, including system design, logistics and installation, power generation, air compressors, chillers, air handling units, cooling towers, heat exchangers, air conditioners, commercial and industrial fans, and dehumidifiers.
This is in addition to commissioning, maintenance and monitoring and demobilisation of equipment from the site upon completion of the job.
Coates Power & HVAC said it will help keep an organisation’s operations running, from temporary systems and short-term bridging solutions to long-term strategies.
Ideal for use in industrial, engineering, mining, oil & gas and manufacturing environments, the company also expects significant interest in regional areas across Australia where its branch network and teams of plant maintenance staff can provide local support to Power & HVAC systems.
Coates CEO, Murray Vitlich, said the company’s vision is to be the market leader in safe, smart and sustainable equipment solutions.
“The launch of Coates Power & HVAC is another key pillar in achieving that vision and ensures we can provide solutions to a broad brush of sectors and use cases across the country,” he said.
“The company has already seen significant interest from new and existing customers across Australia, with the solutions being used (or set to be used) for projects varying from wind farms to freeways and tunnels, and manufacturing plants to ports and loaders.”
For existing customers, Coates is already supplying specialist equipment and expertise which makes it much easier to partner with Coates for additional project requirements, according to Kurt Edwards, Coates Power & HVAC manager.
“We regularly work with building and civil engineering contractors to provide temporary power and ventilation solutions,” Edwards said.
“We now offer a wide range of complementary hire solutions, such as hybrid power systems to support our portable building complexes, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and significant fuel savings for customers.
“Sectors like manufacturing, meanwhile, are generally less reliant on hire, but like all industries may suffer from equipment breakdowns, making access to standby equipment essential.”
Edwards said critical equipment breakdown is a showstopper, so limiting the impact of fixed plant failure and building more robust response or preventative systems are key.
“Coates Power & HVAC can mobilise quickly to address critical plant failure or work with customers to incorporate standby hire equipment into their contingency planning,” he said.
Coates is part of Seven Group Holdings and has a national footprint of over 130 branches and 2000 employees.
