Geraldton Fishermen's Co-Operative has supplied premium-quality Western Rock Lobster (crayfish), to customers across the globe since 1950. Their new Welshpool Live Lobster Export Facility is the latest addition to the Co-op’s strategic network. Covering more than 4000m2, this purpose designed and built facility is the world’s largest rock lobster export facility. 80 tonnes of live lobster will be held in a climate controlled, computer monitored aquaculture system, in more than 1,200 tonnes of refrigerated seawater.
To support their high energy requirements, the GFC decided to invest in solar for their Welshpool warehouse. After careful consideration, Infinite Energy was selected to install an impressive 522kW solar PV system. Not only will the commercial system significantly save the business thousands of dollars each year on utilities bills, but also set them up for future energy security. With a total power output per annum of 848,957 kWh of clean energy, over 2471 trees saved and 662 tonnes of C02 saved, the system certainly does its part for the environment too.
