JBS Australia Hide Processing Facility, Ipswich
JBS Australia Pty Limited is a division of JBS, Brazil’s largest multinational in the food sector, and the worlds largest meat company.
JBS Australia’s objective was to create an environmentally sound Hide Processing Facility, allowing them the ability to process hides in-house and continue to meet their ever-increasing supplier demand. This required redesigning their entire process from the ground up.
A significant design consideration was the use, storage, and recovery of salt, as this has traditionally created an adverse environmental impact.
CEQ was contracted to provide the design and construction of the HV and LV switchgear and distribution, motor control with PLC/SCADA systems, general light and power and fire alarm systems.
