Industrial operations performance company Camms has successfully delivered the total electrical design, integration and commissioning of Yalumba’s Moppa greenfield site in time for the company’s 2005 vintage.
The Moppa winery was constructed as an addition to Yalumba’s current operations, allowing its Angaston winery to increase production of its premium wines.
The new winery will allow Yalumba to consolidate part of its winemaking at the new site allowing the Historic Yalumba Winery to concentrate on premium small batch winemaking.
This project was fast tracked over a period of six months, during which Camms implemented a totally integrated control and automation system across the winery site.
“We are extremely pleased with the delivery of this new site. Camms design and integration of this turnkey project will allow Yalumba to maximise the full potential of this new facility,” Yalumba’s general manager Andrew Murphy said.
As part of the project Camms have integrated state of the art technology to enhance operations at the new facility at Moppa, to capture and manage data as part of a fully integrated system.
Camms also integrated an energy efficient refrigeration control system to maximise compressor activity in the cooling process.
“Camms have demonstrated their superior industry expertise by deploying resources to provide a fully integrated system that allows Yalumba to get the most out of this year’s vintage and beyond,” Murphy said.
Yalumba’s vintage season began on 20th January and continued into the first quarter of 2005.
The Moppa winery will produce a range of red and white wine varieties. “We are delighted to be involved as a key partner in this landmark project for Yalumba.
The successful completion of this project strengthens our position as a leader in our field for the wine industry,” Camms managing director Adam Keats said.
