Brewhouse Decommission and Re-installation

Client: Carlton & United Breweries
Year: 2014-2015
Industry: Brewing
Location: New South Wales

TFG Group was engaged by Carlton & United Breweries to uninstall and then mechanically install the plant and equipment from Warnervale to the new cider making facility in Abbotsford. TFG had comprehensive knowledge of both sites from previous installations and completed the project under budget and within time frame. 

TFG’s sequential removal was meticulously planned with careful handling of fermenters, bright beer tanks, sugar tanks, pumps and heat exchangers. The successful relocation to Abbotsford required the TFG team to manage the projects transport, cranage, civil works and packaging to ensure precision installation of all equipment and tanks. TFG was integral in the commissioning of all relocated equipment once in place at the new cider making plant. 

TFG Group’s Fabrication division in Perth, Western Australia was awarded the design and fabrication of the access platforms, stairs and walkways. Fabricated in the purpose build factory in Welshpool they were then installed on site in Abbotsford to fit the new footprint of the cider making facility. 

TFG successfully integrated the previous beer fermenters with extensive fabrication and modifications of the valve manifolds to be installed in the new plant as cider fermenters. TFG was chosen for this project due to our ability to sensitively remove utility plants including compressed air, boilers and cooling towers for resale.
