Fire Pump Engines
South Coast Track Repairs in Bomaderry is located 40 minutes south of Wollongong in Coastal NSW, and say they do anything to do with pulling a machine apart and fixing it. Dave is parts and sales manager, and says “there is nothing , diesel or petrol; that we don’t do .” The business is 33 years old and looks after the giant Manildra flour mill and Ethanol plant.
The CPAK 6B150 engines supplied by Torquepower will be fitted as fire pumps in the fire room at the Manildra Mill and Ethanol Plant. Dave explains the unfortunate story of the old engines. “The old ones cooked themselves. They ran at full revs for a long period of time, but no one knew that the water hose externals that feed and cool the engines were accidentally turned off. It was a very expensive mistake. We are looking forward to seeing the brand “newbies” – built to spec by Cummins. We will install them. These are beautiful machines, we don’t see much new stuff like that here.
“When I worked in Cutting Edges in Sydney and Newcastle for 10 years, I had a good working relationship with Zac, who is now at Torquepower. We are very happy with Torquepower, both the service, and with how quickly everything was done. They turned the order around in about a week and a half. And that’s pretty much how quickly things need to work for a big company like Manildra. Zac was very patient with us. He quoted for this job back in February, so it was a long drawn-out process. We’re going to be installing them next week. There is a bit to be done pulling the old equipment stuff down out of the mill. Then I’m off to Hawaii for a holiday with the family including my two girls 3 and 7. There’s not much time with work and family, but when I do get some me-time it’s on my R1 Sports Bike.”
