Perth-based engineering firm IKAD Engineering has unveiled its new 15,500 square metre production facility for marine and shipping services at Henderson south of the city.
The new premises contain three workshops:
# An office and fabrication facility designed with the potential to build hull sections for the Hunter class frigates to be built in Adelaide by BAE Systems
# A fully equipped machine shop for mechanical fitting, overhaul and repairs
# And a workshop for exotic welding and non-ferrous materials processing.
Managing Director Ivan Donjerkovich said, “It has been a monumental effort from our crew, our contractors and our suppliers, and we are excited to expand on the good work we have always done – while stepping up our fabrication, machining and mechanical activities.”
The company took to social media to talk about the unpacking of containers and assembly of its new CNC Bridge mills, CNC plate processing and 5 axis pipe processing machines (below).
The company is also installing a 100KW solar system which complements a 100KW system previously installed at its mechanical and machining facility, effectively reducing its carbon foot print.
IKAD operates facilities in Perth, Sydney and in Adelaide providing a diverse range services across Defence, Marine, Industrial, Mining, Oil & Gas, and Water technology sectors.
