The Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC) is part of an international network that supports interplanetary spacecraft missions as well as making radio and radar astronomy observations, in pursuit of pure science. Managed by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) of the Australian Government, it forms part of NASA’s Deep Space Network as one of three tracking stations across the world.
Middy’s has a long history of working with B-Linked Communications, a telecommunications ISGM contractor who provide installation and maintenance connecting dwellings to telephone and broadband services throughout Melbourne. The two companies support each other, work together and have continued to grow as the National Broadband Network (NBN) was introduced in 2009 and began to be rolled out across Australia.
The Middy’s TechEnergy Team delivered a Solar Energy Install at the Membrey Dairy Farm in Warrnambool. The install supports a commitment to reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions and creates a sustainable financial model to mitigate rising power costs.
Dayco is a global leader in research, design, manufacturing and distribution of essential engine products and drive systems for cars, trucks, construction and industry and constantly looks to optimise efficiency in its workplace environments. Accessing a New South Wales Government energy saver initiative scheme, Dayco undertook an upgrade of existing Metal Halide Highbays to new Haneco Skypad 150W Light Emitting Diode (LED) Highbays at their automotive plant in Wagga Wagga, NSW. The impact on operations was immediate, reducing hefty maintenance costs and lowering energy consumption for the manufacturing site.
Australia’s largest motor auction enterprise, Manheim Auctions conducted an energy saving lighting program in mid 2014 in conjunction with Middy’s Abbotsford and the Middy’s TechEnergy Team. The program involved replacing 170 x 400W metal halide highbays with just 133 x Primo 155W LED highbays and one 115W LED high bay. The extra brightness of the 17,000 lumen LED fittings enabled Manheim to increase their light levels while reducing the number of fittings at the same time. The increased light levels have enabled the operation of forklifts to start 2 hours earlier – a major boost to productivity.
Middy’s are a proud sponsor of Muscular Dystrophy Australia. To assist the amazing team at MDA, Middy’s Energy Smart offered to refit their office in North Melbourne with the latest Omega Greenline LED lighting. Through the kind support of Casey Electrical Services, MDA have been able to lower their monthly expenses, freeing up raised funds to be spent on more important areas of the business.
Most electrical contractors are aware of the many energy efficient products available on the market, but do you know which products provide the greatest benefit to your customers? Middy's Energy Smart has been setup to provide product knowledge and installation information to make you an expert on energy efficient products.
The Northern Victoria Livestock Exchange is the largest livestock exchange in Victoria for its throughput of cattle and one of the largest in Australia. NVLX conducts Prime, Store, Cow, Bull and Special Cattle sales as well as sheep and horse sales and has a ten year throughput average in excess of 205,000. NVLX approached their electrical contractor Muntz Electrical, with the need for a simple lighting automation system.
Originally opened in August 2010, Crowne Plaza Adelaide in Hindmarsh Square required an LED lamp refurbishment to cut down on massive energy consumption. Middy’s TechEnergy were called in to replace the existing standard halogen downlights with 1250 LED downlights. This resulted in an overall wattage saving of 47,500 for the entire building and 38 watts per lamp.
In the wake of a large scale update of street lighting around the Warrnambool foreshore precinct, a lack of light was still identified in some areas at the conclusion of the project. Solar G Light House systems were then selected and utilised to address this urgent requirement.
