Coates turns its hand to delivering smart, innovative and seamless temporary air, power, climate and process cooling solutions to customers in response demand for Power & HVAC services across multiple sectors.

Coates has expanded its product offering by introducing Coates Power & HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). In response to customer demand, the company will now be able to supply smart, innovative, and seamless temporary air, power, climate, and process cooling solutions to businesses across Australia.

Coates Power & HVAC expands on the company’s existing competencies by offering turnkey solutions for power, compressed air, climate control, and process cooling, as well as a comprehensive range of custom-built equipment and end-to-end service and support. Coates Power & HVAC will assist an organisation in maintaining its operations, from interim systems and short-term bridging solutions to long-term initiatives. Ideal for usage in industrial, engineering, mining, oil & gas, and manufacturing industries, the firm anticipates strong demand in remote areas throughout Australia where its branch network and teams of plant maintenance personnel can give local assistance to Power & HVAC systems.

The first Coates Power & HVAC hubs will open in Sydney’s Ingleburn, Melbourne’s Dandenong, Adelaide’s Albert Park, Brisbane’s Kingston, and Perth’s Belmont. Together with other regional branches, these hubs will provide consumers with a complete end-to-end solution for their electricity and HVAC needs, including:

  • 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,” said 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 businesses around Australia focussing on meeting their Net Zero goals and contributing to a greener economy, client demand for energy efficient power and HVAC solutions has never been higher.

Coates Power & HVAC offers solutions for hundreds of potential 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 received significant interest from new and existing customers across Australia, with the solutions being used (or planned to be utilised) for projects ranging from wind farms to motorways and tunnels, as well as manufacturing plants, 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,” said Edwards. “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 many industries, they may suffer from equipment breakdowns, making access to standby equipment essential, according to Edwards.

“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 said. “Coates Power & HVAC can mobilise quickly to address critical plant failure or work with customers to incorporate standby hire equipment into their contingency planning.”
