Morowa, Western Australia

OVERVIEW

MEEDAC (Midwest Employment and Economic Development Aboriginal Corporation) is an organisation dedicated to creating meaningful employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal people.

THE CHALLENGE

MEEDAC committed to a joint initiative with Karara Mining to build a horticulture enterprise that could provide quality fruit and vegetables to mine sites and local supermarkets.

Located in the Shire of Morawa 400km from the centre of Perth, BON were called upon to deliver site power infrastructure running from an independent off grid supply, installation of climate control to a 10,000 sqm shade house, electrical wiring and fit out of the packing facility and cool rooms.

THE SOLUTION

Through consultancy with the client, BON was able to develop a comprehensive design that would meet the projects requirements. Upon receiving the clients sign off the project was planned by splitting this into three separate phases.

The electrical power infrastructure was delivered by a team of three people upon early establishment of the site. The first phase of the project also included all necessary provisions in preparation of the greenhouse.

Phase two commenced upon completion of the CRAVO greenhouse. The house required installation and commissioning of PRIVA climate and fertigation control systems.

The final piece of the project was to develop and ongoing preventive maintenance plan to ensure the installation would operate at optimum performance and deliver the required yields for the client.

THE OUTCOME

MEEDAC have successfully implemented a cropping schedule and are producing an abundance of leafy greens, cucumbers and capsicum for the local community and mine sites close by.
