Coates launches Power & HVAC business

Power & HVAC

Australia’s leading equipment hire and solutions company turns its hand to delivering smart, innovative and seamless temporary air, power, climate and process cooling solutions to customers. The launch of the new business is in response demand for Power & HVAC services across multiple sectors.

Coates, Australia’s leading equipment hire and solutions provider, has expanded its offering and launched Coates Power & HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning). Responding to customer demand for these services, the company will now be able to provide smart, innovative and seamless temporary air, power, climate and process cooling solutions for myriad use cases to companies across Australia.

Building on the company’s existing capabilities, Coates Power & HVAC provides turnkey solutions for power, compressed air, climate control and process cooling, with an extensive range of custom-built equipment and end-to-end service and support. Coates Power & HVAC will help keep an organisation’s operations running, from temporary systems and short-term bridging solutions to long-term strategies. Ideal for use in industrial, engineering, mining, oil & gas and manufacturing environments, the company also expects significant interest in regional areas across Australia where its branch network and teams of plant maintenance people can provide local support to Power & HVAC systems.

The first Coates Power & HVAC hubs will launch in Ingleburn in Sydney, Dandenong – Melbourne, Albert Park – Adelaide, Kingston – Brisbane, Belmont – Perth. In conjunction with more regional branches these hubs will offer customers a complete end-to-end solution for their power and HVAC needs, encompassing:

  • An assessment of customer requirements
  • System design
  • Logistics and installation
  • Power generation equipment, including generators, and battery and hybrid power systems
  • Power distribution equipment, from plug-and-play to large-scale industrial solutions
  • Air compressors and quality air equipment
  • Chillers, air handling units, cooling towers and heat exchangers
  • Air conditioners, commercial and industrial fans, and dehumidifiers
  • Commissioning, maintenance & monitoring
  • Demobilisation of equipment from site upon completion of the job

“Our vision is to be the market leader in safe, smart and sustainable equipment solutions, and our customers are driving us to lead the way,” says Murray Vitlich, CEO, Coates. “The launch of Coates Power & HVAC is another key pillar in achieving that vision and ensures we can provide solutions to a broad brush of sectors and use cases across the country.”

With companies across Australia focusing on delivering on their Net Zero commitments and on contributing to a greener economy, the demand from customers for energy efficient power & HVAC solutions has never been greater.

Coates Power & HVAC provides solutions for potentially hundreds of use cases across Australia, including ventilation, temperature control systems, dehumidification, air quality services, temporary air and power generation/distribution, hybrid power systems and more. The company has already seen significant interest from new and existing customers across Australia, with the solutions being used (or set to be used) for projects varying from wind farms to freeways and tunnels, and from manufacturing plants to ports and loaders.

For existing customers, Coates is already supplying specialist equipment and expertise which makes it much easier to partner with Coates for additional project requirements, according to Kurt Edwards, Coates Power & HVAC Manager.

“We regularly work with building and civil engineering contractors to provide temporary power and ventilation solutions,” Kurt says. “We now offer a wide range of complementary hire solutions, such as hybrid power systems to support our portable building complexes, resulting in reduced greenhouse gas emissions and significant fuel savings for customers.”

Sectors like manufacturing, meanwhile, are generally less reliant on hire, but like all industries may suffer from equipment breakdowns, making access to standby equipment essential, according to Kurt.

“Critical equipment breakdown is a showstopper, so limiting the impact of fixed plant failure and building more robust response or preventative systems are key,” he says. “Coates Power & HVAC can mobilise quickly to address critical plant failure or work with customers to incorporate standby hire equipment into their contingency planning.”
