Coates Power & HVAC has mobilised an 800 kW industrial chiller to help Visy maintain a vital production line, completing a delivery and installation from interstate in 36 hours.

Visy, Australia’s leading packaging solutions provider, faced a disruption to its milk bottle production line and required an industrial chiller to keep the production going as planned.

The company arranged for an 800kW chiller to be mobilised and delivered from New South Wales to Victoria, a chiller which represented the largest of its kind ever deployed by Coates’ South Business Unit.

Coates Power & HVAC pre-tested the chiller to ensure it was in working order and facilitated delivery of the equipment to site where it was craned into position, connected to the fixed plant services and commissioned.

Soon afterwards, the chiller had the production line back up and running, delivering volumes of cold water into the site’s chilled water storage tank.

Coates business development manager, Paul De Villiers, said the company received the call Wednesday afternoon, delivered Thursday and had a Coates chiller operating by Friday morning.

“We turned it around in 36 hours from time of order,” he said.

“The launch of Coates Power & HVAC equips us with a range of services and equipment that we can deploy to minimise the impact of critical plant failures impacting production in the Manufacturing sector.

“This is a great example of being able to deliver and install vital equipment quickly to get things back up and running for our customers.”
