design and construct for kangaroo island pure grain

Kangaroo Island Pure Grain specialises in the production of premium quality grains. Their grain is completely free of any genetically modified content. KIPG grow their products on Kangaroo Island, 22km south of South Australia, 406,504 hectares of land internationally renowned as one of the most pristine natural environments in the world.

qub was engaged to carry out the design, construct and commissioning of the power distribution and control systems for a new grain cleaning facility and the upgrade of other existing site infrastructure to support the new facilities capacity. 

Since this initial project qub has been continually involved in electrical maintenance on site as well as energy efficiency projects throughout the site.
